Yesterday’s answer:

(A)   The Quorum of the Seventy

Beginning August 17, 1835, this group of seven presidents over the seventy was sustained with the other General Authorities of the church. That their status was clearly subordinate to members of other presiding councils is suggested in the call of Joseph Young. Although one of the most senior members of the First Council of the Seventy, he did not even realize he was one of the seven presidents until he was so informed by one of the apostles four years after having been given that responsibility. Nevertheless, the basic function and jurisdiction of the First Council of the Seventy had been outlined in 1835. In 1878, Joseph Young told a group of seventies: “Speaking of his own experience he said that he never knew that he was President of the Seventies until he came to Nauvoo [in 1839] and Br. Brigham told him that that was his place and he took it.”
