I wish to express my appreciation for the splendid
support given me in the May Primaries. In a field of
three Republican Candidates, I received a substantial
majority of all Republican votes cast for the office of
District Attorney. I likewise secured many complemen

realised such votes could not count in the primaries. 1
am grateful for this expression of confidence.
With 34 years of active experience in the general
practice of law. 28 of which years were spent in this
County, 1 feel that I am qualified to serve you well as

to an economic, faithful, and impartial performance of
the duties of such office, and to conduct the affairs of
