Leaving on the Same Day

The same day that the Saints left Nauvoo for the west (Feb. 4, 1846) what other group was leaving for the Salt Lake Valley?
a.                  A group from Canada
b.                  A group from New York City
c.                   A group from Australia
d.                  A group from Mexico
Yesterday’s answer:
b.   Their singing
The following from the life of Samuel Roskelley:   He was the youngest of six children, and received a fair education, preparing for a position under the British government. Attracted by the singing of the Latter-day Saints, in the fall of 1851, he came to their meetings and was soon convinced that they taught Bible truths, and he was consequently baptized Dec. 3, 1851, by Elder James Caffall; confirmed Dec. 7, 1851, by Elder William G. Mills.
