Right Down to the Detail

Image result for detail
Early member of the Church, Homer Duncan, saw a vision prior to his and other men joining the Church that let him know that soon he would be a member. The vision was so detailed that he knew what?
a.                  The mission he would be called to serve in
b.                  The date that the other men in the vision would be baptized
c.                   The name of his first Sunday school teacher
d.                  His address where he would reside in Salt Lake City
Yesterday’s answer:
d.   Ward Special Police Captain
From the life of Charles Henry Crow:   Soon after his arrival in Utah he located in the Eleventh Ward, Salt Lake City, which was his home until his death. Soldiers who were located at Fort Douglas frequently were guilty of disturbing the peace and robbing the gardens of vegetables and fruits. The people and their possessions needed protection, and for many years special police were on guard. For a great many years he was captain of the Eleventh Ward Special Police, a body of men who risked many dangers at the hands of reckless characters, and who did service for many years without thought of monetary reward.
