Many Thanks
I wish to thank the voters of Vance county
for the vote given me last Saturday. Al
though my candidacy for Recorder was
announced rather late, this vote fully
came up to expectations.
It is evident that the contest for Recorder
will be “run off” between the two high
est men, of whom I am one, and t take
this first opportunity to thank you for
what you have done, and to solicit your
further support, and to assure you that if
success ultimately rests with us, you will
have my lasting gratitude and apprecia
tion. , , ]
Sincerely yours,
