I suppose we have carried the Legislature; allow me to join in the chorus of congratulations, which I trust will grow louder and larger until it swells into one grand shout of Amen! and Amen!! over your election to the Senate.
We have done well in Scott - having reduced the majority of over 300 to 37!!
If I can aid you in any way to achieve the Senatorial Success, let me know and I am that! Yours Ever, for God and our Country!
