Henry Tanner to Ammon Tenney, July 13, 1885

I've been meaning to put up a scan of two letters written by Henry Martin Tanner to Ammon M. Tenney, and after the mention of Ammon Tenney the other day, here's one of them. It was written in 1885 when Tenney was serving time in the penitentiary for polygamy. Mentioned in the letter is the death of Sister Mary Bushman, a particularly close friend of Henry's wife Eliza Parkinson Tanner. Please contact me if you would like a copy of the other letter.
