He Couldn’t Keep her Away

Henrietta Lundquist Bells

Henrietta Lundquist Bell’s father tried many things to keep her away from the LDS meetings while she was living in Sweden, but failed each time. He even went so far as to do what?
a.                  Kill her
b.                  Send her to a boarding school in Norway
c.                   Send her to an Aunt in Finland
d.                  Lock her in a shed on Sundays
Yesterday’s answer:
A   It’s where her husband would go to avoid an argument
From the life of Levi Savage Waldron:   He had a blacksmith shop which his wife called his “pouting house.” Rather than have an argument, he would just go to the shop and whittle. One day his wife, who had wanted her kitchen chairs fixed, loaded them in a wagon and had someone take them down to his shop. He was told, “Mrs. Elam brought her chairs over, and she wants them fixed as soon as you can get around to it.” Levi hurried and got the chairs fixed in no time, not recognizing them as his own chairs.
