Well! well! that Buck, Hunt & Co. should
be so prejudiced against one who is a gen
tleman, which is more than they have shown
themselves to be since as rattle-headed boys
they assumed charge of the Record and pro
ceeded to become dirty contemptible liars for
a little more bread and butter, and hang on
to the indictment they so becomingly gloat
over of which I am quite well assured they
did all they could to cause to be found,
and themselves and a blessed few of
their ilk are the only ones in
the community that regret that the first false
swearing was ever set at naught. You are a
cowardly set at best and put your great trust
in your numbers, whereby the personal res
ponsibility could not be found. That Buck
& Hunt, when they allowed, or wrote, or in
timated that I opposed or voted in favor of
removal of the military, knew personally, as
they sat and stood next to me with no one
intervening between us, and all that I said or
did by voting was in favor of retaining the
military (not Moale) here. This they knew
if they knew anything at all, and wilfully and
maliciously lied when they wrote it. Come
out from your cowardly position; I ever walk
the streets unarmed; you need not fear any
thing from this source. And now, publicly,
as the course you have chosen, I now brand
you or any one that further maligns me or
mine, as malignant, cowardly, lying pol
At home any day. WILL E. TURNER.
