The Leeds, Utah Meetinghouse Bell

Where did the bell come from that hangs in the Leeds, Utah meeting house?
a.                  From the Nauvoo Temple
b.                  Stolen from Fort Douglas
c.                   From the Kirtland Temple
d.                  From the original LDS meetinghouse in Leeds, England
Yesterday’s answer:
(C)   Paint
From the journal of Mary Ann Chapple Warner:   Father had bright-colored paint and often gave some to the delighted Indians. We used to watch them go out to the trees and decorate themselves. Father had a beautiful buckskin horse which he prized very highly. One evening he jokingly promised some Indians they could have the horse for forty dollars. The Indians said they would return in three months for the horse. True to their word, they returned with the forty dollars. Although Father had only been joking he gave them the horse, which he valued many times more than the price.
