Yesterday’s answer:
(A)     A dugout
From the life of William Miller:   He stopped at Garden Grove, where his wife’s father, Aaron Johnson, was presiding, and put in crops, which, however, he left for others to harvest, and continued to Council Bluffs that season, in time to cut hay and make winter quarters. But after cutting his house logs for his winter cabin, he was taken down with a severe sickness. On his recovery, he found that someone had appropriated his house logs, and, as winter was on him, he sold his only coat for a dugout in the side of the bluff, where he and his family passed the winter of 1846-47.
