Trying to find the Plates

A number of individuals tried to find the plates after it was noised that Joseph Smith had the plates in his possession. One such individual was Sally Chase. What information did she have that she thought could help her and her Methodist minister brother secure the plates?
a.                  She possessed a peepstone
b.                  She was best friends with Martin Harris’s wife
c.                   She had a dream
d.                  She had the best divining rod in Palmyra
Yesterday’s answer:
c.   $18
The following is in reference to the first British Mission. The following individuals were sent; Heber C. Kimball, Orson Hyde, Willard Richards, also Elders Fielding, Russell, Goodson and Snyder from Canada.
   The missionaries left Kirtland in mid-June almost destitute, though friends and relatives gave them small amounts of money, which, together with sixty dollars in Kirtland Safety Society notes that John Goodson was able to exchange with a New York broker, provided money to purchase passage on the ship Garrick. The fare was eighteen dollars apiece, and they had to supply their own provisions. They arrived penniless at the port of Liverpool on July 20, 1837, yet by the end of their mission they had made friends and attained a success many would have thought impossible.
