said office and being informed by several
parties that Mr. Ernest M. Green had of
fered to withdraw in favor of any candi
date from the north aide of Neuse river
I decided to enter the race, provided he
would do so. ) ,
' But on seeing Mr. Green, he denied
making any such statement except that
such candidate should have the majority
of the votes on this side of the river.
This of course could not be ascertained
and m Mr. Green would not withdraw
under any other conditions, I did think
it advisable to allow my name to bo used
as a candidate for said office.;- .
