Trustee Babbitt wrote Brigham Young that he arrived in Nauvoo from the East 2 weeks earlier, where he had visited a number of cities, and that he had been unable to find a buyer for the temple. The best he could get was an offer of $100,000 for the temple and the Wells and Kimball properties. He felt that he could get that amount locally. He also reported that Galland had two suits against the Church, one "in Chancery, as well at common law."
