Henry Jacobs, living in California, writes to his legal wife Zina Diantha Huntington Jacobs Smith Young (a plural wife of Brigham Young who was also a plural wife of Joseph Smith while married to Henry), "O how happy I should be if I only could see you and the little children, bone of my bone, flesh of my flesh. . . . I am unhappy, there is no peace for poor me, my pleasure is you, my comfort has vanished. . . . O Zina, can I ever, will I ever get you again, answer the question please."
