Dedicating the Sandwich Islands for Preaching

See the source image

In December 1850 a number of Elders called to serve in the Sandwich (Hawaiian) Islands, dedicated the islands to the preaching of the gospel. What did each Elder carry to the top of the hill in preparation for the dedication of the country?
a.                  A stone each to build an altar
b.                  Pineapple, coconuts, pupaea, or guava
c.                   Their scriptures
d.                  A bucket of sand
Yesterday’s answer:
B   Sent the 501st hat from Bartholomew Cubbins to an LDS lady
From the life of Cleo Heavener:   One day, Cleo Pierce Heavener found a precious doll for sale in a little shop. She brought the little blue-eyed, golden-haired doll home, christened her “Rosabelle,” and crowned her queen of the dolls. Cleo’s other dolls became the ladies-in-waiting in Queen Rosabell’s royal court. Heavener even wrote a book entitled, Rosabelle, Queen of the Dolls; The Doll that Went to School. Her Royal Highness, Queen Rosabelle, was featured in Look Magazine in 1939. Rosabelle’s fame spread, and Dr. Seuss sent her the 501st hat from Bartholomew Cubbins. In 1950 renowned doll-maker Madame Alexander created a rendition of Rosabelle, exclusively for Auerbach’s Department Store in Salt Lake City. Today Queen Rosabelle reigns in the Provo Pioneer Museum over her pioneer ladies in waiting and the other dolls in the entourage.
