Making him Promise

See the source image

When Orson Hyde stopped in Philadelphia to preach the gospel on his mission to dedicate the Holy Land, he was given a purse of money and promised to do what from the individual that gave the money?
a.                  Place his name on the temple role
b.                  Take him on his mission
c.                   Baptize him when he came back from his mission
d.                  Mention his name in the dedicatory prayer of the Holy Land
Yesterday’s answer:
C   She would deliver the first male baby in the valley
From the life of Patty Bartlett Sessions:   Sunday, September 26, 1847. “Got to meeting; heard the epistle read from the Twelve. Went and put Lorenzo Dow Young’s wife, Harriet Page [Young], to bed with a son, the first male born in this valley, It was said to me more than five months ago that my hands should be the first to handle the first-born son in the place of rest for the saints, even in the ‘City of God.’ I have come more than one thousand miles to do it since it was spoken.”
Patty Bartlett Sessions never failed in doing the right or courageous thing, reportedly delivering 3,977 babies under both favorable and adverse conditions; and throughout the years, even before she move to Bountiful, Utah, she traveled to and from that community to wait upon the women of her own family.
