To the Voters of Van Buren County:

We, the undersigned citizens of Van Buren County, through no motive of self interest, hereby recommend T. L. Burris, of White Oak Township, who is an aspirant to the office of Assessor, as a worthy gentleman of pure motive and honest sentiments, well qualified to perform the functions of the office for which he is a candidate. We being personally acquainted with him and his condition, claim for him a preference right to this office - he being one of the worst of cripples. Should he be elected, we are fully confident he will well and truly perform the duties of his office.
