Heber Wanted Him to Go, but the Prophet Said No

Heber C. Kimball wanted Brigham Young to join him on the first Britain mission in 1837, however, Joseph Smith said no. Why did the prophet say no to this request?
a.                  He foresaw the Missouri problems and knew Brigham would be needed to get the Saints out of Missouri
b.                  He needed Brigham to paint his house
c.                   He wanted Brigham to lead the first mission to Canada
d.                  He wanted Brigham to study the route to the Salt Lake  Valley
Yesterday’s answer:
a.                  They released the first copy of the Women’s Exponent
The Woman’s Exponent:   The publications of the Relief Society have been important factors in the development of Relief Society women, in the advancement of the work of Relief Society, and in the preservation of its history. The Woman’s’ Exponent, the first publication owned and printed by Latter-day Saint women and the second woman’s publication west of the Mississippi River, was first issued June 1, 1872, the day being chosen or its coming forth in honor of the birthday of Brigham Young, who was always its staunch friend and advocate.
