George Henry Crosby’s Release

See the source image

In 1867 Elder Crosby was called to serve in the Southern States mission, but soon after arriving to his field of labor was released, why?
a.                  He became sick
b.                  He became home sick
c.                   He was made a Bishop
d.                  He apostatized
Yesterday’s answer:
C   To construct a boat
Tuesday, July 27th.—The morning was warm, but somewhat cloudy. The bugle sounded as usual for the brethren to go to work, plowing and planting. There was a small company sent back on the road five or six miles with two wagons to get logs to saw up to make a boat. Soon after breakfast two Indians of the Eutaw (Utah) tribe came to camp. They were somewhat slightly clad in skins, and are quite small in stature. J. Redding exchanged a gun with one of them for a horse. Brother G. R. Grant also exchanged a gun for a pony. They gave us to understand by signs, that there was a large party of them about forty miles from here.
