Missing from the Vision

Orson Hyde
Before Orson Hyde and John Page left Nauvoo for their epic mission to the Holy Land, Orson had a vision of Jerusalem. However, something significant was missing from his vision. What was it?

a.      Elder Page

b.      The Dome of the Rock

c.       The Mount of Olives

d.      Elder Hyde’s written dedicatory prayer

Yesterday’s answer:

b.   He was a mob member at Haun’s Mill

From the journal of Henry Bigler April 28, 1847: To-day something in human form was seen on the streets of San Diego begging for food. He claims to have been one of Fremont’s men and says he has been traveling in the Rocky mountains for several years. He is the worst-looking person I ever saw. He is disabled in one of his shoulders and has a wound in his head. Brother Horace M. Alexander of our company knew him. The rascal acknowledged that he was one of the mob who massacred 18 or 20 of the Saints at Haun’s mill in Missouri and begged to be forgiven for the part he took in the slaughter.
