Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   One of his children’s blankets
Brigham Young, so his account tells us, roused himself from a sickbed, took an old quilt from one of his children’s beds, threw it over his shoulders to serve as the overcoat he didn’t possess, and with no more scrip or purse than a Galilean Apostle he left his wife and four children—one of them only ten days old—to set out across the frozen fields of Illinois, Ohio, New York, down through New England to New York City. But being without visible means never bothered Brigham Young.
