Yesterday’s answer:
D   His physical strength
From the life of Samuel John Sudbury:   Bro. Sudbury in his young days was a man of great physical strength, and when the emigrants forded the rivers he carried many women and children across. Frequently he would take a woman in each arm and tell them to hold on to their babes. In going down steep hills he often walked along side of the wagons, and with a firm grip on the spokes of each wagon, he would practically lock the wheel and thus prevent it from sliding down the mountain side.
