"John H. Pierson alias W. G. Hunt, alias J. Henry, is posted in Colorado and Utah as a bilk and bigamist. John Henry is described in the Salt Lake Reporter as follows: “When he smiles the upper lip is drawn tightly over the gums, exposing a very fine set of teeth. He smokes and imbibes, but does not chew. Sports a heavy gold neck-chain, and breast pin made of a nugget; also, a round Masonic pin of solid gold, with the square and compass counter sunk. He has a smooth face, excellent education, and very insinuating manner; reads poetry eloquently, talks fluently of his travels in Europe and elsewhere, has the name of every New York banker at command, and is evidently fitted by nature for a most consummate swindler. One of his favorite tricks is to engage a man in conversation, learn his genealogy in part, and supply the rest; then claim to be a cousin, or some relation, and obtain a loan. Pass the rascal around.""
