During the Battle of Nauvoo, early member Henry Grow (master mind of the Salt Lake Tabernacle) heard a voice. What did the voice tell him?
a.                  Leave Nauvoo
b.                  Build the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City
c.                   Continue to fire at the enemy
d.                  Surrender
Yesterday’s answer:
B   The discontinuance of the Neighbor
Senior editor John Taylor explained to subscribers the reason for stopping the paper: “Because we are compelled by mobocracy, on account of the weakness of the law and the stupidity or hypocrisy of its executors, to quit the ‘asylum of the oppressed,’ we have thought it advisable to discontinue the Neighbor at this number.”
