The Cost of the Temple

What was the final cost of construction on the Salt Lake Temple?
a.                  10 million
b.                  3.5 million
c.                   2 million
d.                  5 million
Yesterday’s answer:
(D)   The mob itself
From the journal of Mosiah Hancock:   After the brethren had delivered up their arms, Father mounted his horse Turk, and rode off to Adam-On-Diahmon [sic]. A party of forty-two of the mob’s cavalry started in pursuit of Father. A whisper came to him, “Go through the Hal thicket, then turn to the left.” This he did, and it brought him in the rear of the gang that was pursuing him. He said to one of the men in the rear, “Where had that fellow gone?” “I don’t know,” was the answer, “but we will soon catch him” Father stopped his horse and pretended to tighten his saddle-girth, and then he escaped from his pursuant.
