H. F. Wasmund. Sr.,
Ruahvllle, Nebraska.
My Dear Sir:
It having been brought to my at
tention that the story is being cir
culated by some parties or this rep
resentatJve district, that in the post
you have failed and rfeused to sup
port democratic tickets Mm) fusion
tickets regularly nominated; and it
appearing that the purpose of these
.report is to induce democrats to
vole against you this fall: Now, for
Jhe purpose or stating the tacts,
permit me to say that I have been
intimately acquainted with you ami
your political acts for the last twen
ty live years, ami have known what
your political action lias been each
fail al our general elections, and I
want to say most emphatic ally, u i, I,
out fear of contradiction, that at
wvery election you, as wi II as your
targe family of boys, as soon as
the became old enough to vote,
have given unqualified support to
our fusion and democratic tickets,
national, state, and county. These
facts are so well known by demo
crats generally in this community
that I believe that each and every
one of them who is ml opposed to
you for personal reasons, would
give a certificate as I have done
to this letter. Very truly yours,
Clipping from Rushvillc Standard

the fact that 11. F Wa-mnmd, Sr .
