See the source image

Who are the only two men in the Church to hold the position of assistant president of the Church?
a.                  Brigham Young and David Patton
b.                  Oliver  Cowdery and Hyrum Smith
c.                   Martin Harris and Joseph Smith Sr.
d.                  Hyrum Smith and Samuel Smith
Yesterday’s answer:
D.   Dressed in extra clothes
The following is in reference to the weight each person was allotted to load into the handcarts: Each person was allowed seventeen pounds of baggage, which included bedding, extra clothing, and cooking utensils. A member of the first handcart company of 1856, Mary Ann Jones, wrote: “Some wanted to take more than the allotted portion and put on extra clothes; thus many who were real thin became suddenly stout and as soon as the weighing was over, put their extra clothes back on the handcarts. But that did not last long. In a few days we had to have all weighed again and many were found with much more weight on the carts than allowed. One old sister carried a teapot and colander on her apron string all the way to Salt Lake. Another carried a hat box full of things, but she died on the way.”
