How Much?

Those who were convicted of co-habitation usually served a 3 to six month prison term and expected to pay $100 to $500 in fines. Judge James C. Miner broke the mold when he charged one Saint found guilty to how much money?
a.                  $1
b.                  Six cents
c.                   $1000
d.                  $1500
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   To bring Martin Harris to Utah
The following from the life of Edward Stephenson:   In 1869 he was called on another mission to the States from which he returned in 1870. In reporting his mission to Pres. Brigham Young, he spoke of Martin Harris, one of the Three Witnesses to the Book of Mormon, who was still living in Kirtland, Ohio, and who had expressed a desire to come to Utah. Consequently Elder Stevenson was called on a special mission to bring Martin Harris to the headquarters of the Church. He responded willingly, and returned to Salt Lake City, accompanied by Martin Harris, Aug. 30, 1870.
