Yesterday’s answer:
A   Gave tours in her small museum
From the life of Lucy Mack Smith:   After her husband died, Lucy moved into the Mansion House with Joseph and Emma. To provide income, a small museum was established under her care in a lower room. Josiah Quincy, one-time mayor of Boston, wrote of an 1844 tour of the mansion with Joseph Smith, who introduced Mother Smith: “This is my mother, gentlemen. The curiosities we shall see belong to her. They were purchased with her own money at the cost of six thousand dollars.” After disclosing four mummies, Joseph closed the cabinet with, “Gentlemen, those who see these curiosities generally pay my mother a quarter of a dollar.”
