Dudley Leavitt
In 1855, Dudley Leavitt was traveling from Santa Clara, Utah to Las Vegas, Nevada when Indians captured him. The Chief wanted his braves to kill Dudley, but had a change of heart when Dudley did what?
a.                  Said a prayer in front of the Indians
b.                  Preached from the Book of Mormon
c.                   Started to sing LDS Hymns
d.                  Pulled out his six shooter
Yesterday’s answer:
B.   Travel incognito
From the life of William Miller:   In consequence of the Utah troubles of 1857, most of the Elders were called home, Elder Miller among the rest, leaving Liverpool Oct. 14, 1857, in the steamer “Baltic,” in company with Orson Pratt, Ezra T. Benson, Alexander McRae and others, who were compelled to travel incognito, not desiring to be known as “Mormon” Elders, in consequence of the bitter feeling then manifest against them.
