During my campaign for the office I was treated with such uniform courtesy and was the re cipient of so many kindnesses and favors that I deem all the people of Holmes county my friends and feel very appre ciative toward all. While failing to gain the goal I sought I feel amply repaid for my efforts ifi making the campaign, as it afforded me the opportunity of meeting and greeting **»d becoming acquainted with the splen did people in every part of Holmes coun ty, whose genuine and abounding hospi tality is unequalled anywhere on earth.

If you heard any rumors during the cam paign of any "combination" in which I was alleged to have been a party, I here by brand all such rumors as being wholly false and without any basis or foundation whatever. I made the race strictly on my own merits, and was in no way in terested or involved in that of any can My defeat leaves no rancor or "sore spot" in my heart whatever, and I am not in the least dismayed and de didate for any other office. Again thanking al! for the support, kindnesses and favors shown me during this my first entry and experience in the po litical arena, and wishing each and all abundant success and prosperity, I re main, Gratefully yours, R.
