ing, wife of Dr. G. V. Gooding, in
the amount of $1,430.61. The
amount reported by the auditors as
missing from the Health Depart
ment In the complete audit of that
department last year.
Mrs. Gooding addressed the fol

Mr. Ralph Jones,
Treasurer of Duplin County

Dear Sir;
IN RE: DR. G. V. GOODING
Upon information that an audit
of the records of Dr. G. V. Gooding
tend to disclose a descrepency in
funds in the amount of $1,439.61:
as Dr. Gooding is in the Pacific
Area, and in Military Service of
the United States, I am delivering
to you a Cashier's Check in that
amount.
This check is to cover anv and all
aiscrepencies snown by the audit.
Though I have no way of know
ing as to the correctness of the
audit, in order that the Tax Payers
of Duplin County, may be protect
ed fully, I am paying the full
amount that the audit tends to
disclose as due by Dr. G. V. Good
ing. I am paying this amount, volun
tarily from my own funds. It is
not being paid with the funds of
any other person.
Respectfully,
Mrs. G. V. Gooding
It is reported by county officials
that the acceptance of this money
does not imply in any matter that
the courts have not or, will not
prosecute. The settlement was
made as a purely civil matter. Nor
wood Boney and J. Faison Thom
son are representing the Goodings.
Court House reports are that
Solicitor Walter Britt, who approv
ed the county accepting the money,
expects to present the case to the
Grand Jury next week. Last fall
Solicitor Britt informed the Times
that he hoped to Bet it to tho
January Grand. Jury.
