George W. Emery was Utah’s 11th Governor (1875-1880) and was so good to the Saints that they named a County after him (Emery). Which Washington politician did he convince to visit Utah to help remove the current prejudice that the church was facing?
a.                  President Grant
b.                  Ex-President Lincoln
c.                   Robert E. Lee
d.                  Thomas Kane

Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   Mennonites
From the life of Theodore Brandley:   In the spring of 1884, Elder Brandley received a call to fill a mission among a people called Mennonites, who were scattered over the States of Kansas, Minnesota, and the Dakotas, as well as in Manitoba, Canada. He left his home again May 5, 1884, and traveled in company with Elder Samuel Witmore thorough the places named, preaching the gospel to that peculiar people, as well as to many others, without any apparent success (as far as the Mennonites were concerned).
