He Couldn’t Leave Without Giving Him Something

Image result for giving
When John Smith, the prophet’s uncle, entered Nauvoo for the first time, Joseph Smith paid him a visit and gave him what?
a.                  A blessing
b.                  His copy of the Book of Mormon
c.                   A place to live
d.                  His boots
Yesterday’s answer:
a.                  He was told this in a dream
From the life of Henson Walker:   Henson was a member of the Nauvoo Legion and enjoyed their drill very much, but more than all else in the world he enjoyed standing in the square listening to the inspired commanding tones of that humble young Prophet, Joseph Smith. He was always happy when in company with him and was more than willing to render him all possible aid. He was with the Legion at the old frame house, near the Mansion, June 18, 1844, when the Prophet unsheathed his sword for the last time. When Joseph left Nauvoo for Carthage, Henson was very anxious to see an armed escort go with him, because he was pledged to support him. In a dream he was told that Joseph and Hyrum were all right, that they were beyond the reach of the mob. And when the next news came, they were truly beyond the reach of all mobs.
