Home Remedies

Early Latter-day Saint, Peter Wilson Conover states that he came down with typhoid fever and that he went to a drug store and purchased calomel. What else did he add to the calomel to help him get better?
a.                  Rhubarb and molasses
b.                  Cinnamon and alcohol
c.                   Tomatoes and whiskey
d.                  Watermelon and sassafras
Yesterday’s answer:
A, b, and C
It is significant that Moroni came three times on the night of 21 September 1823 to deliver the same message. Peter’s dream of the clean and unclean animals, which preceded the extending of the blessings of the gospel to the Gentiles, was also repeated three times. In the old Testament we read that the youthful Samuel did not understand the voice of the Lord until he heard it the third time. This was also the case with the Nephites when the voice of the Father spoke from the heavens to introduce his Son. Similarly, during the imprisonment of Helaman’s sons, Nephi and Lehi, a heavenly voice was heard three times commanding men to repent.
