To the Voters of Union Parish:
I desire to take this means of expressing my sincere thanks and appreciation to my many friends in Union Parish who cast their votes for me in the recent primary election for District Attorney and who contributed so much toward my campaign in the way of work, support and other means. The campaign was, indeed, a pleasure from the standpoint of good feeling, good sportsmanship and gentlemanly actions of all the candidates. I hold nothing in my heart but good will toward everyone. And, although I lost, I feel that I gained a host of friends of everlasting duration. In standing for election for District Attorney, I stood on principles that I did not sacrifice. It is indeed regrettable that every political campaign cannot be conducted as was this last one.
In closing let me again thank you from the depths of my heart and to tell you that I have always had and will continue to have the interests of Union Parish at heart.
EDWARD EVERETT, JR.
