Mr. McLendon's Card.

Thomasville, Ga, April 21, 1904. Editors Times Enterprise:

I wish to express to each and all of the gentleman whose names are signed to the foregoing, most grateful thanks for this agreeable evidence of their good will and to announce my willingness to serve as a member of the House of Representatives if nominated at the primary in August. I have been asked if I would favor a dispensary in this county if elected. I have answered that I would not, nor would I favor the sale of whiskey in this county in that or any other way. The people of the county have settled that question twice and settled it permanently.

I wish not only to thank the signers of the foregoing request but the many others who have kindly offered me assurance of support.

S. G. McLendon
