Eli’s Mission Call

When Eli Pierce was called over the pulpit on a mission during the fall 1875 general conference, what was strange about the call?
a.                  He wasn’t there, he was completely less active
b.                  He was already serving a mission
c.                   He was just barely back from a mission (two days)
d.                  He was an excommunicated member
Yesterday’s answer:
a.      Too many men farming
At the turn of the century, priesthood quorum meetings were conducted either on Monday evening or on Sunday morning and were discontinued during the summer months because most Church members were busy farming.
