A term of office As alleged before the electoral Board Quot neuralgia conflict with professional duties desire to be As per vouchers now in my Possession. I never was afflicted with neuralgia nor do i remember that sickness of any kind Ever kept me from my duties As trustee neither was there Ever any conflict with professional duties. I never made any request to be relieved from the duties of the office Udre Enumerative As it was and even if so. Common Courtesy would have so credited me in the published proceedings of the electoral Board. A stated in or.

Laudable appeals for better school facilities have been made to the District boards from the organization of the free school system and will continue to be made As Long As the system continues. The length of our school term seven months and the fact that Atlantic District poor As Bhe is has proportion ably More and better Public school buildings Chan any other school District in the county in the Oyster Section especially shows that the District Board has met these appeals to the full sex.

No doctor there was no demand for an edict sex Cathedra in defence of your associates for i am fully satisfied by direct information that the action of judge Ross and or. Gunter in my Case was based upon Quot a misapprehension of facts a and i hereby gladly withdraw any apparent reflection on these gentlemen in any thing i have written. No trustee however Long and faithful his service need hereafter stand in trepidation while these gentlemen guard the por tals. I Grant that Atlantic school Board has More than once antagonized or Mapp in his personal desires and for this i have no apology to make but or. Editor i am not mad with anyone. Bellicose As we All Are at this time 1 am a a left with a feeling of a peace with All the world and the rest of Mankind Quot and stand ready to forgive and to help even or.
