c.       Both were equally despondent

d.      Hyrum

Yesterday’s answer:

b. They would have tea after the meeting

British convert George Morris recorded:

“Before I was baptized I walked eight miles to attend a fast meeting held by the Saints in the carpenters hall in Manchester, fasted, and at four o’ clock in the afternoon they had what they called a tea party [to break their fast]. But there was no tea there; they had hot water with plenty of god cream and sugar and plenty of something good to eat. I partook with them as though I had been one of them, and felt in my heart that it was the richest feast in my life, and the best company that I had ever enjoyed.
