What activity did William Barton and Sarah Foster participate in after their marriage in the Endowment house in 1867?

a.      They swam in the Great Salt Lake

b.      They raced their horses on the Bonneville Salt Flats

c.       They reenacted the Saints arrival to the Salt Lake Valley

d.      They climbed Ensign Peak

Yesterday’s answer:

a.      Award a 1st place

The following from the life of Adam Craik Smyth, born February 29, 1840: On one occasion Smyth was called to judge a music contest held in Price, Utah. The contest number was “Pilgrim’s Chorus” from I Lombardi. After the contest was finished, Smyth refused to make an award for first place, saying that  every choir had “murdered” the piece by singing it much too fast, and he added that it was in the nature of a prayer and should have been sung with much more feeling.
