FROM HERRING NECK To the Hon. ROBERT BOND, Colonial Secretary. As a vacancy has been created in the representation of our district by the resignation of Mr. Thompson, we, the undersigned electors of Twillingate District, gladly, avail ourselves of the opportunity of asking you to allow yourself to be put in nomination as the candidate for this district and beg to assure you that we will use our best endeavours to secure your triumphant return. We very much regret the malicious conspiracy on the part of political opponents by which you were deprived of your seat in the House of Assembly, after your grand victory in Trinity district at the last general election; and now that a seat is vacant in our district it is with the greatest pleasure that we desire to avail of your valuable services for our district as well as the country generally. It may be that as you are now free from the duties of a representative, you would prefer remaining so until the next general election, but we fully appreciate your noble and patriotic efforts in the interests of our colony, and consider that at such an important epoch as this in its history we cannot afford to dispense with the presence of such a talented statesman on the floors of the House of Assembly. We therefore invite you to offer for our district at the approaching bye election, and as the prevailing sentiment all over has long been in favour of the political party of which you have been a prominent Leader, your supporters feel very sanguine that you will have a most successful election. [I must comment and say that I am sure William Coaker must be responsible for this excess verbiage when compared to the other districts!] We remain, yours sincerely,
