Where did Hans Carlston of Norway first hear the gospel preached in 1853?
a. While visiting a prison
b. In the local Catholic Church
c. In the town bar
d. In a monastery
(B) The General Tithing office
The first real postal system in the Utah territory involved the General Church Tithing Office in Salt Lake City and other local tithing offices. These community “stores” serve variously as warehouses, banks, employment agencies, welfare and weighing stations-and as centers for communications. They were the “post offices” of the territory, using tithing-donated labor to receive and dispatch mail. They were also the centers of commerce, accounting, and exchange until banks and general stores appeared in the 1870’s.
