Myron Tanner
Myron Tanner, the San Bernardino rustic, meets Jane Mount

In 1855 I came through to Salt Lake where I became acquainted with Jane Mount who was living at the time with Henry Lawrence. Most of my boyhood days my life was separate and apart from girls in whose society I was both bashful and awkward. She was rather delicate, a very refined and intelligent woman of literary tastes and poetic instincts. Her make-up seemed just the opposite of my own rugged, untempered and uncultivated nature. However surprised others appeared by reason of her attention to me, we nevertheless became engaged.
