See the source image

One day Howard Egan Jr's. family was the last wagon in the company. His mother allowed him to walk behind the wagon while she drove, however, he found himself getting farther and farther behind until he could no longer see the wagons. Sister Egan sent George Redding to bring her son back to the company. What did George do when he found the young lad that caused Howard to never get separated from the camp again?
a.                  Put him on his shoulders and ran causing the young boys frame to shake
b.                  Pretended to be a native
c.                   Hid from him and made wolf noises
d.                  Whipped him
Yesterday’s answer:
A   Reducing fevers
From the life of Bathsheba Wilson Bigler Smith:   George Albert was sick last Saturday and Sunday. He had quite a fever. I was very uneasy about him. I was afraid he was going to have the fever. I took him to the font and had him baptized and since then he has not had any fever. His is about well now. Looks a little pale. I anointed him with oil a good many times and washed his little body with whisky and water which was burning with fever but it did not do the good I wanted it should.
