ANOTHER OPEN LETTER Holbrook, Arizona. July 19, 1922. Mr. John N. Gruhl, Winslow, Arizona. My Dear Mr. Gruhl: Following the customary precedure in debates and court practice, a few words in reply to your letter of the 9th instant will be proper. It is pleasing to me to know that you had been wrongly quoted in the statement at tributed to you,' but the fact remains that some o f my closest and best friends gain ed the impression (which they still retain) you had rather positively stated I would not be a candidate for re-election I appreciate your pledge of support in case I am nom inated and wish to assure you of my reciprocation m the event you are the suc cessful nominee. Throughout the state this office is rather peculiar in that its incumbents sen r e several terms. In Navajo County my predecessor held the office for nearly eighteen years consecutively, even be ing elected to the position after having held it for near ly fifteen years by appoint ment. He retired of his own free will and accord. Believing that I have con ducted the office in such a manner as would merit my re-employment by the good people of Navajo County, I had no hesitancy seeking • re-election and no thoughts that a third term would be frowned upon. Very truly yeurs, 1 Lloyd C. Henning. Telegraph Manager Ed ; ward Wonders and wife re turned this week from an ex tended vacation trip at Los Angeles and other points on the Coast. During Mr. ' Wonders’ absence John ! Sweeney has been looking after the duties of manager. i Conductor C. E.
