The Victory Liberty Loan.
To the People of Edgefield County:
For the fifth and last time our
Government appeals unto its people
to invest in war bonds for the pur
pose of raising money with which to
defray the expenses as incurred by
extensive expenditures and prepara
tions for winning the recent German
As Chairman of Edgefield County, t
I wish to appeal to the people of our I
County and say: "Do as you have
done in the past and the patriotic
banner of old Edgefield County will
float aloft throughout the ages of fu
ture history; will you floatJt, or will
you trail it in the dust of humilia
tion and regret? We have floated her
historical banners of the past; can we
refuse or neglect to float her appor
tioned Victory Liberty Bonds of the
present? No! a thousand times-no!
cries our pride and patriotism.
All undertakings incorporate the
embodiment of the initiative, the
* cone' i.sion and the result; the begin
ning, the end and the reward. Our
initiative has been an overwhelming
success through the initial efforts,
bravery and co-operation of our vic
torious and unconquerable armies,
unto whom all honor and praise is
hereby ascribed; victorious, because
they knew that they were backed up
by the people at home.
The Hindenburg lines liave been
hurled into the rar?ks of ignominy,
humiliation and defeat; his vast mili
tary hordes conquered and vanished;!
the terms of the Armistice dictated;
. the enemies' navies towed into the
ports of the conquerors; kings and
emperors dethroned; the dictator and
instigator of this most brutal and in
human war removed from the throne
of Autocracy and oppression, and in
ducted into the private ranks of citi
zenship as a sawer of wood.
We have completed the beginning
generously and gloriously; can we
now afford to be denominated "doubt
ful patriots and poor citizens" be-*
cause of our indifference or unwill
ingness to see the war through to a
finish and carry our share of the bur
den? What shall dur answer be? Let
our bravery and patriotism answer!
Let's complete the finish most glo
riously, and most generously, and the~'
trophy of reward will be assigned to"!
. us in such terms and measure that J
our posterity will ever greet with a j
smile the historical records and allu
sions to our patriotic efforts and
Isn't it woith t"he price? A small
financial investment, not sacrifice,
contributed by a son to the freedom
and support of his country; an exten
sion of the hand of help to a Victo
We rught not, we cannot, we must
not fail in striking the last blow to
the hand that forced an entrance in
to the sacred realms of our woman
' hood; empaled infants upon its bayo- .
net; severed feet and hands from the j
bodies of helpless, defenseless and in-1
nocent children. Can we so soon f or-|
get it? No, not the people of Edge
field County! ,
This conclusion is .compulsory rel
ative to our country or the reward,^
will be lost; also, will be lost to the j
man who fails in this hour of need j
and appeal to do his duty, but forever "
and eternally assigned to the patriot
ism of him who acts well his part.
Will you consign your body to the
tomb of regrets? Will you be a slack- !'
er? Or will you respond heroically to
your country in its appeal for !: ;lp, !
realizing that should you not do so
the opportunity will be lost never to j
be presented again, and you will have ]
failed in rendering "unto Caesar the
things that are Caesar's"
The officers said to our boys in .
charging the Hindenburg line: "Hold
them boys!" The response came in
thundering tones-"We will hold
them!" The officers said: "They mustj"
not pass!" The boys shouted-"They
shall not pass!" Victory followed!
Most earnestly do I proclaim and ?
appeal unto the sons and daughters
of old Edgefield County: Rally to the
support of the future historical j
reputation of your County; sustain
the Victory Liberty Loan appeal of
your Government; shout forth the e
ternal slogan : "We must, we will sus- J
tain the Victory Liberty Loan; it
shall not fail" to the blood-crying
voices of our boys from the battle- j
fields of France, crying, "Are you ]
still with us?" Let your answer be-1(
"Our sons of the dust, we are with
you, even unto the end!"
Next, the REWARD! What a glo
rious inheritance for our posterity!
Yours in Patriotism and Victory,
