Yesterday’s answer:
C   $2500
The following is a visit of Henry Caswall to Joseph Smith in 1842:   He led me to a room behind his store, on the door of which was an inscription to the following effect: “Office of Joseph Smith, President with several Mormons to this sanctum sanctorum, he locked the door behind him, and proceeded to what appeared to be a small chest of drawers. From this he drew forth a number of glazed slides, like picture frames, containing sheets of papyrus, with Egyptian inscriptions and hieroglyphics. These had been unrolled from four mummies, which the prophet had purchased at a cost of twenty-four hundred dollars.
