Notwithstanding the fact that I
have tried to visit every section of
the county, I have been unable to
do HO. I appointed a great many
road overseers in the county to work
the delinquent taxpayer^ and most
of them responded but some have,
on account of so few hands, return
ed their commissions to ma. If there
are any who will undertake the work
where I have not been with the
gang; l?t them notify me at once
and I will send them a commission
and instructions. It is my determi
nation to have all delinquents work
a the road, even if I have to violate
my promise not to have them work
ed by the chaingang authorities.
