The Only Woman

As far as we know, Mary Musselman Whitmer is the only woman to see the gold plates. We know that the angel Moroni showed her the plates while the plates were being translated at the Whitmer household. When Mary related the account later, how did she refer to Moroni?
a.                  The Angel Moroni
b.                  Brother Moroni
c.                   The Angel Nephi
d.                  Brother Nephi
Yesterday’s answer:
(A)                 October 1848
At the Eighteenth General Conference of the church held in the log tabernacle on April 6, 1848—during which Miller’s Hollow was officially renamed Kanesville in honor of Thomas L. Kane—the sustaining of Brigham Young as Prophet, Seer, and Revelator and second president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was officially rendered. The assembled Saints in the British Isles likewise sustained the action in August, as did those back in the City of the Salt Lake in October, “there being about five thousand people in the valley by that time.”
