Dear Henry:—I herewith return your Interrogatories
answered. You can use them, I hope, to the interest of
prohibition. I could have gotten many signers to them,
)ut have confined myself to the local business men right
lere. Wishing the cause of prohibition much success in
your county and that when it carries it will be enforced
as well as it is here, which it will be, if your officers and
people do their duty. Yours, for success,
W. 11 Haynes.
I have letters from tf. A. Matthews, W. W. McLeod,
and otherbusiness men of Wills Point 'filly endorsing
the above answers. nL fl/- Geddie.
