They Were Spotted at the Manti Temple Dedication

Which heavenly visitants were seen at the Manti Temple Dedication?
a.                  Nephi and Moroni
b.                  Joseph and Hyrum Smith
c.                   Joseph and Emma Smith
d.                  Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   Willard Richards
The following prophecy is in relation to Dr. Richards being with Joseph and Hyrum the day they died in Carthage Jail.
   Dr. Richards’ escape was miraculous; he being a very large man, and in the midst of a shower of balls, yet he stood unscathed, with the exception of a ball which grazed the tip end of the lower part of his left ear. His escape fulfilled literally a prophecy which Joseph made over a year previously, that the time would come that the balls would fly around him like hail, and he should see his friends fall on the right and on the left, but that there should not be a hole in his garment.
