“Go Daughter; Sleep in Peace and Rest”

Shortly before Joel Hills Johnson’s wife passed to the other side she heard the above words. Who spoke these words to her?
a.                  Her mother
b.                  Her father
c.                   The Lord
d.                  Her guardian angel
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   Shoot him
Brigham Young made the following statement in typical Brigham fashion; basically, to the point:
“If a white man steals, shoot him. If an Indian steals teach him better.”

Nels Anderson, Desert Saints: The Mormon Frontier in Utah. (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1966), 146.
