The desire to write a sketch of my own and my father's life, including the genealogy of his family, first prompted the writing of this book. My thought was, thereby to begin a chain to which other links might be added by future workers. A chain by which our family connections might be drawn closer together, and become in some degree at least, better acquainted with each other. Yet, up to this time, my father's posterity has become so numerous that it is considered best not to have their names recorded in this book. But in another book, material for which is already being gathered, our family records will be traced, where the names of those coming after may be added. In the genealogical work, here mentioned, I am being assisted by my nephew, H. B. Clawson, Jr., sister Ellen's eldest child.

Again, I have thought it proper to explain to the people and children of the Latter-day Saints, the origin and intent of Primary work; and this explanation will be found in Part Second of this volume. For very kind and able assistance in the editing of this book, I am deeply indebted to my faithful friend and colaborer, Sister Lula Greene Richards. The writings of this book will probably not escape criticism; but I trust that my critics will be charitable, and consider the motives which have prompted such an undertaking by THE AUTHOR. ; 5" x 7"; 333 pages
