Little Did He Know

When Charles Lamb was called to serve a mission to England, he made a side trip to Niagara Falls. While there an individual pointed the Mormon missionaries out to his daughter and said what?
a.                  “They are forced to serve missions”
b.                  “Their horns are missing”
c.                   “They can have all the wives they want”
d.                  “Take a good look, you may never see so many together again”
Yesterday’s answer:
c.   Joseph Smith
As Brother Joseph said [In relation to Governor Lilburn W. Boggs], "the great change that may appear to some, in the views, designs and craft of this man, to rob an innocent people of their arms by stratagem, and leave more than one thousand defenseless men, women and children, to be driven from their homes, among strangers in a strange land is so glaringly exposed in the sequel that all earth and hell cannot deny that a baser knave, a greater traitor, and a more wholesale butcher, or murderer of mankind ever went untried, unpunished, or unhung."
