Ditching Wilford

Wilford Woodruff
Why did Wilford Woodruff’s companion ditch him during their mission together?

c.       Wilford became lame and couldn’t keep up

d.      Wilford talked too much

Yesterday’s answer:

(C)   Catch them by hand

Parley P. Pratt writes the following:

   “I was at the Utah Lake last week, and of all the fisheries I ever saw, that exceeds all. I saw thousands caught by hand, both by Indians and whites. I could buy a hundred, which would each weigh a pound, for a piece of tobacco as large as my finger. They simply put their hand into the stream, and throw them out as fast as they can pick them up. Five thousand barrels of fish might be secured there annually, just as well as less.”

Millennial Star, Nov. 15, 1849, pg. 343.
