Yesterday’s answer:

(C)   An argument broke out among the mob

From the journal account of Lucy Mack Smith: “When it became generally known that Joseph was about moving to Pennsylvania, a mob of fifty men collected themselves together, and they went to Dr. McIntyre and requested him to take the command of the company, stating that they were resolved on following ‘Joe Smith’ and taking his Gold Bible’ from him. The doctor’s ideas and feelings did not altogether harmonize with theirs, and he told them they were a pack of devilish fools, and to go home and mind their own business; that if Joseph Smith had any business of that sort to attend to, he was capable of doing it, and that it would be better for them to busy themselves about that which more concerned them.

   “After this a quarrel arose among them respecting who should be captain, and it ran so high that it broke up the expedition.”
