After Conference Activities

What would the General Authorities do after conference during the early days of Utah?
a.                  Heal the sick
b.                  Eat dinner
c.                   Bless babies
d.                  Set apart missionaries ready to leave for the field
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   The bread
The following from the Arnold Goodliffe:   I had some valuable experience and trouble with Indians, and my wife Mary and an old gentleman on one occasion fed Indians on bread and buttermilk until the men returned to the fort. It took all the bread in the settlement, but it prevented bloodshed and murder and demonstrated the truth of Pres. Brigham Young’s saying that it was cheaper to feed Indians than to fight them.
