Card of Thanks
From J. E. Thore
Walnut Cove, June 10, 193 J.
To my friends:
,1 take this method of extending to
you, one and all. my sincere thanxi
I for your support in the primary last
' Saturday, when I offered myself a
cmdldate for the legislature from
Stokes county. While I did not win
out, I ree.ive.l a fine vote from
hundred* of loyal friends and sup
porters, of which I am proud and
, very grateful. I am not an office
seeker, and my motives in seeking
the nomination and election, were
rot selfish, but I honestly wanted t J
be of help to the people of Stokes
county in these times of flnanciel
' stress and when the burden of tax
' ation Is so heavy to bear. I con
sidered that my platform to reduce
county expenses by lowering the
salaries of county officers was only
fair and reasonable at this time
| when so many people have no Jobs
at all. and when plenty of efficient
men and women are willing to wo'k
at almost nominal salaries. I think j
there is no question but that my,
nomination was assured until the,
latter part of last week when follow-1
ing a secret meeting of a few who (
opposed my nomination, a false re
port was spread which prejudiced
' the minds of many people who oth
-1 erwise would have supported me in |
, the primary-
Of this I shall have more to say
later. It is sufficient to say now th n t
'the people are apprised of the double,
ibarrellid influence which if control',
ing both the Democratic and Re ,
' publican parties in Stokes county fo.-
selfish motives, and which is against
the best interest of the prople.
I have been asked by many
friends to enter a second primary, I
cannot consent to this, as I prom,
ised the people that I would abide
their decision on the flivt primary.
They have made this decision. I
submit to It.
Again thanking you for your kind
sppport and friendship.
