Combining Scripture

See the source image

We know that the scriptures we use today in the Church were different from what the early Saints had. There wasn’t always chapter headings or prefaces to each chapter. What book of scripture do we now combine the verses of that used to be separate?
a.                  Pearl of Great Price
b.                  Doctrine and Covenants
c.                   Book of Mormon
d.                  Bible
Yesterday’s answer:
a.                  10,000
Diary and reminiscent accounts by people who traveled the Oregon, California, and Mormon trails in 1852 describe extra dust, regular competition for campsites, grass and buffalo chips being already used up, and other wagon trains often being in sight. John Unruh, in his landmark study The Plains Across, estimates that in 1852 on the overland trails 50,000 people went to California, 10,000 went to Oregon, and 10,000 wen to Utah, making that year the trail’s busiest traffic year of all time. Elder Benson estimated 10,000 LDS emigrants, and so did eastbound traveler Thomas Margetts.
