Manna on the Provo River

Lucy M. Smith (not the mother of Joseph Smith) states in her journal that they gathered manna like the children of Israel along the banks of the Provo River in Utah County. What was she referring to when she stated manna?
a.                  Quail
b.                  Bread
c.                   Honey dew
d.                  Partridge
Yesterday’s answer:
c.   Mormon Hill
At the time of Joseph Smith, the hill known as Cumorah was well recognized, however, in 1898 the U.S. Geological Survey referred to the hill as “Mormon Hill.” It wasn’t until 1952 that the named was changed back to “Hill Cumorah.”
