The Thomas Kane Purchase

What did the Church purchase in connection with Thomas Kane in the early 1970’s?
A)                 His letters and papers to the government to help the Mormon cause
B)                 His history of correspondence with Brigham Young
C)                 The Presbyterian chapel that he is buried at in Kane, Pennsylvania
D)                 An original of Thomas Kane pamphlet to the government titled, “The Mormons”

Yesterday’s answer
(D) A flax wheel
From the journal of Lucy Meserve Smith, who entered the Salt Lake Valley September of 1849, we learn the fun name for a flax wheel:
Whimmikie Whammikie two Standard Lillikie Strikiety Huffity Whirlimagig.
Really, not a whole lot different from the thing-of-a-majigs of today.
