Mrs. S.S. Wassel,
Little Rock, Ark.
Dear Mrs. Wassel: --
Judge
Turner Butler, of
Hamburg, is being
opposed for a second
term to the office of
judge of this judicial
circuit by a Mr.
Bradham of Warren.
A majority of the
woemn here are
[Page 2] inclined to support
Judge Butler if his
attitude towards
womans suffrage
has been what it
should have been.
We have heard
indirectly that his
attitude while in
the Legislature a
good many years
ago was very
favorable.
I have an idea
[Page 3] that you are familiar
with his record along
this line, and, if I am
correct in this, I would
appreciate it if you
would write me in
a way that would
not embarrass you
for me to make some
public among my
friends.
My position is if a
man's record shows
that he has been fav-
orable towards womans
suffrage we should
let the women know
about it, and visa
versa.
Sincerely yours
Mrs. Ohmer C. Burnside
Lake Village
