d. Rising at 6am
a. A compass and a telescope
Referring to Brigham Young’s cane: Displayed along with the boots is his walking stick. The cane is a mottled brown color with a silver metal piece which unscrews, revealing a compass. In the hollow of the cane is a telescope such as a sea captain might have used. These items were donated by the wife of Henry Chariton Jacobs, a stepson of Brigham Young. His mother was Zina D. H. Young.
