Coming up with the Money

Orson Hyde was asked by Brigham Young to raise $1225 to build what in Nauvoo?
a.      A log cabin to be used as a meeting house
b.      A Building for the Relief Society
c.       A Tabernacle
d.      A barn for the Church’s farming equipment
Yesterday’s answer:
a.      James Polk
President James Polk donates ten dollars to Charles C. Dana and Robert Campbell who are in Washington D.C. on a mission to raise money for the pioneers. First Lady Sarah Polk also contributes toward the Saints at a benefit dinner held in Washington.
