Yesterday’s answer:
B   Translated the Book of Mormon into Hawaiian
From the life of George Q. Cannon:   He began translating the Book of Mormon into Hawaiian after hearing the language for only one month. “In the beginning my method was to translate a few pages. . . and explain to Brother Napela [a Hawaiian judge] the ideas. I would then read the translation to him. . . and learn from him the impression the language conveyed to his mind. In this way I was able to correct any obscure expression which might be used, and secure the Hawaiian idiom.”
