Elder and Sister Harris served at the Carthage Visitor Center and Jail on the "C" shift. That means we go at 8:45 am until 11:30 am and then come back at 2:15 pm until 5:00 pm. Elder and Sister Taye came in early so we could leave earlier then 11: 30 am because we needed to be back at 1:00 pm because we had a bus tour coming at 1:30 pm. They wanted us to learn how to do big tours. The tour group was from Utah and Idaho. Their were 46 of them and so they all watched the film and then Elder Harris and I split them up. I took the first group of about 24 people and Elder Harris took the rest of them, 22 people about 10 minutes later. I took them right into the parlor room because that was a larger room than the kitchen. That is where I told of the building of the jail and the people that bought the jail at different times. Then I told of the Jailor and his family of 7 children living in the jail at the same time as the prisoners where in the County Jail. The Jailor's wife cooked all the meals and fed everyone that was in the jail and they had to pay for food, candles, cloths, and whatever they needed. John Taylor paid for the meals for Joseph and Hyrum Smiths and the other men's meals they ate. John Taylor recorded the time he ate with Mr. Stigall
