Problems in the Tabernacle

See the source image

Hannah Tapfield King states that there were problems in the Tabernacle during early Utah. What were the problems she saw?
a.                  The acoustics
b.                  The sermons
c.                   Vanity and folly
d.                  Lack of air flow
Yesterday’s answer:
A.                    The images of Joseph and Hyrum Smith
The missionaries descended the steep slopes, reaching Torre Pellice at dusk after a physically exhausting but spiritually exhilarating day. A new chapter was opening in the Italian Mission, and [Lorenzo] Snow took care to mark the transition from a private to a public posture with a symbolic act: “As a sign to all who might visit us, we nailed to the wall of my chamber the likenesses of Joseph and Hyrum Smith. From that day opportunities began to occur for proclaiming our message.” Over the next seventeen years, before the mission closed in 1867, approximately 180 Waldensian converts joined the Church, and about seventy of them emigrated to Utah in three separate companies during the 1850s. Among these Italian settlers were the Beus, Malan, Bertoch, Chatelain, Cardon, Pons, Stalle, and Gaudin families, who became prominent on Utah life.
