business ability his own father told and that he was not fit for he shown any interest In the welfare of our dis trict while he was traveling over the civ ilized world for ten years he has all that

he has had help General Henderson and others came to his assist What a small attempt to deny a man the credit due to his efforts and his what a mark of base and con temptible ingratitude to belittle a
