[Heber J. Grant]
Emily & I took a ride for nearly 2 hours. While riding talked on old times the Wasatch crowd etc. I asked Emily to marry me and got a most decided refusal. I must confess it hurt my pride as well as my feelings to get 'set down on' the way I was, but I should have contented myself by not asking.
