which I had from friends, and fellow
Democrats all over the county, meant
anything. But there were .many rea

time,was particularly to lie avoided, if j
possible,especially so when the dim- 1
ination of only one man would re
lieve the county of this enormous ex
pense. there was also an clement of
uncertainty a.- to which one of the
loin candidates in the field would be
eliminated by the primary. Coslen’s
District i properly entitled to only
one. and the primary might not ha- e
settled the matter this way.
I So my friends, in making the sacri
i fire that I have. I trust you will
I appreciate my position, having con-
I I sulored the Democratic party, and tin j
-; taxpayers of the county, in prefer- i
-once to my own personal ambitions.
I feel very grateful to all of you who
promised me your support, and I
wish to he remembered by you, first
of all a- a Democrat, ready to stand
by my party, and do all that I can to
j further its interests.
Very sincerely,
