He Wanted to Give it Away

Thomas Kane
At his last parting with the Saints, what did Thomas Kane want deposited in the Salt Lake Temple?
A)                 His heart
B)                 The signed original copy of a Book of Mormon given to Kane by Brigham Young
C)                 Copies of his two patriarchal blessings he received from the Saints
D)                 The key to Salt Lake City which was presented to Kane by Brigham Young at the time he was able to negotiate a peace settlement between the Saints and the government in relation to the 1857 Johnston’s army incident
Yesterday’s answer:
c.   The Prophet that was published in New York City
In January, 1847, Brannan (Samuel) began the publication of the Yerba Buena California Star, using the press on which The Prophet had been printed by the Saints in New York. This was the first newspaper printed in San Francisco and the second English paper in California.
