Outside Money

Where did the money come from to purchase the land in and around what would become Far West, Missouri?
a.                  A donation from the State of Missouri
b.                  A donation from the Federal government
c.                   A donation from the Saints in Nauvoo
d.                  A donation from Saints in Kentucky and Tennesse
Yesterday’s answer:
a.        Walker’s Grand Opera House
Walker’s Grand Opera House in Salt Lake City was destroyed by fire in the night between the 3rd and the 4th. A number of smaller fires in the city destroyed considerable property, the cause being carelessness in using combustible articles in celebrating the Fourth of July.
