They Were Permitted to See More

When the Three Witnesses were shown the plates from which the Book of Mormon was translated, what else did David Whitmer say was shown to them by the Angel Moroni?
A) A vision of the future growth of the Church
B) Other plates
C) Ammon’s sword
D) The floor plan for the Kirtland Temple
Yesterday’s answer:
d.   Molasses production
The sugar beet equipment that the church purchased in 1852 was initially taken to Provo and then set up on the northeast corner of the temple block in Salt Lake City to make molasses. Eventually the equipment was moved four miles south of the city to the present day location of what was eventually named Sugar House.
