Card From Mr. Mims.
I would be guilty of base ingrati
tude were I to fail to express my
sincere appreciation for the very gen
erous support given me in the prima
ry election. A perusal of thc official
statement will show that I received
a highly creditable vote at practical

one of the 40 votes cast at Talbert.
This expression of confidence, espec
ially the first time I offered my
services to the people in a public ca
pacity, will inspire me to render in
return the very best service of which
I am capable. I am especially grate
ful for the votes cast for me by our
soldier boys in training camps, 19
out of 23 being cast for me. Although
a member of the local board, these
young men realize that I am their I
