Daniel’s Position in the Church

See the source image
Daniel H. Wells

At the death of Brigham Young, Daniel H. Wells was called to be a counsellor by John Taylor. A counsellor to what?
a.                  To the First Presidency
b.                  To the Quorum of the Twelve
c.                   To the President of the Church
d.                  To the Patriarch of the Church

Yesterday’s answer:
D   Joseph Fielding Smith
From the life of Joseph Fielding Smith:   Relating a boyhood incident when his father had purchased a fine riding horse from George Q. Cannon, President Smith said, “She was so smart she learned how to unlock one kind of corral fastener after another that I contrived, until Father said to me, half humorously, that Juney seemed to be smarter than I was. So Father himself fastened her in with a strap and buckle. As he did so, the mare eyed him coolly; and, as soon as our backs were turned, she set to work with her teeth until she actually undid the buckle and followed us out, somewhat to my delight. I could not refrain from suggesting to Father that I was not the only one whose head compared unfavorably with the mares.”
