At a conference of the Church held in Nauvoo in October 1845, Lucy Mack Smith spoke of going with the Church to the Salt Lake Valley and then requested what?
a.                  That she is made President of the Relief Society
b.                  That she is given a room in the Lion House
c.                   That after she dies, that her bones are buried in Nauvoo with her husband
d.                  That her son William is made the President of the Church
Yesterday’s answer:
a.                  A Hawaiian women’s organization similar to the Relief Society
From the life of Henry Phinehas Richards:   Dec. 27, 1876, having been called at the previously held semi-annual conference, he started on his second mission to the Hawaiian Islands. At San Francisco he took passage on board the steamship “City of New York” and arrived at Honolulu Jan. 12, 1877. He labored on all the principal islands of the group, and met many friends with whom he had formed an acquaintance over a quarter of a century before. He had several very pleasant interviews with his majesty, King Kalakaua, and presented the Queen Kapiolani with an elegantly-bound volume of the Book of Mormon, published in her own language. He also traveled a short time with her majesty the queen upon the island of Hawaii, ate at her table and assisted her on different occasions in organizing her Hoola Hooula Lahui, an organization similar to the Relief Societies among the latter-day Saints.
