"J" ADIES AND GENTLEMEN,—The time has JL* come when I again appear before you to ask for the continuance of the kir.d support which you have extended to me in the past. For six years I have had th honour of being your representative on the County Council. I have been regular in my attendance at the meetings both of the Council and its Committees, and I have been assiduous in my attention to all matters specially affecting this Division or any portion of it. The new Education Act is involving the County in very heavy expenditure. It is of the highest importance that the County Council shall contain gentlemen who feel the rates 4 em selves, and are anxious to keep them withi^ due "bounds, while duly administering the Act.' With this object I have already laboured, and J hope by your kind indulgence to have the opportunity of continuing ¡ niy labours. I thank you heartily for the confidence you have hitherto given me. I solicit the same for a further period, and I beg to assure the Electors that I will serve them to the best of tny ability, and do all I can to secure efficiency and economy in the govern- ment of the County. I have the honour to be, Ladies and Gentlemen. Yojrr .bedient Servant, R. T. RICHARDSON. Capenhurst, 4th February, 1904. lEtmcatifiual. t? iTinr^TTTirr. -t-« PUBLIC SPEAKING RECITATION. MR. W. H.
