They Went by a Different Title

Image result for titles
In order for the first missionaries to enter Saxony (Germany), where there was no religious freedom, what title did they use to enter the country?
a.                  As Priests
b.                  As Reverends
c.                   As Instructors
d.                  As Salesmen
Yesterday’s answer:
D.   It had the words “Holiness to the Lord” inscribed on it
A large steel mallet made by a Church blacksmith shop on Temple Square was used to drive the last spike. Native iron for the last spike was manufactured by Nathaniel V. Jones, and the spike itself was made by James Lawson of the Sixteenth Ward in Salt Lake City. He had polished the spike until it shone like silver. It was carried to the ceremony on a red velvet lace-trimmed cushion fashioned by his wife, Harriet Lawson. Mr. Ries, a metallurgist from the Sixteenth Ward, had engraved a beehive and the inscription “Holiness to the Lord” on the heads of both the mallet and the spike.
