“You Will Become Great. . . Even as God Is”

The above words were stated by a patriarch to a future prophet of the Church. Who received this promise?
a.                  Lorenzo Snow
b.                  David O. McKay
c.                   Gordon B. Hinckley
d.                  Thomas S. Monson
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   1855
In January, 1855, there were nine convicts in the new prison (At present day Sugar House). By 1857 there were ten, and in 1859 only six, and in 1861 only three, all of whom were Indians; two of them escaped and one was pardoned. By 1864 there were seventy-five prisoners. In his memoirs, Warden Rockwood states that seventeen served out their terms, twelve made good their escape, and several others “have escaped but have been taken and recommitted dead or alive.” This increased number of prisoners probably reflected the arrival into the Valley of many non-Mormons and camp followers left behind from the “Mormon” War.
