D   A section of the rope he was dragged with
From the life of James Godfrey:   He filled a short mission to the Northwestern States in the spring of 1881, and returned home on account of ill health in 1882. While on this mission, he and his missionary companions hired a hall at Montecello, Minnesota, to hold meetings in. While the Elders were preaching they were attacked by a mob who threw a rope on Elder Godfrey and dragged him quite a distance; but fortunately the rope broke, and Elder Godfrey escaped unhurt. He brought a piece of the rope, nine feet long, away with him as a souvenir.
