Selling his Clothes

Today we deal primarily in cash. There is some bartering today, but not much. For instance, my wife does everything from baking, sewing, to refurbishing furniture. There have been times when she has bartered her talents for something that she has wanted. This was a way of life for pioneers since there was very little money in Utah. Also, pioneers were famous for selling, if they could, articles of lesser importance, to gain the larger prize. Franklin D. Richards sold all the clothes he dared to sell in order to pay for what?
a.                  A team of oxen and a wagon
b.                  A house
c.                   Funds for a mission
d.                  A quadruple combination
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   Mountain Daisy
William Pitt and his wife Mary Jane Collins Dyer had a daughter born to them in 1868 that they named Mountain Daisy.
