503 East Grace Street February 14, 1916. Miss Edna Turpin, Chase City, Virginia, My Dear Miss Turpin: I wrote this letter to ask you to influence Mr. L. Gregory, Mr. H. F. Hutcheson and either Mr. Holmes or the son of Mr. Holmes - I am not quite sure which - to use their influence with Senator Jeffreys in behalf of the Co-ordinate College Bill. Some letters to Mr. Hudgins, of Chase City, might be helpful. Mr. Hudgins has received some letters adverse to the Co-ordinate College Bill from the Farmville alumni only today, and I understood him to say that he had not received any letters in favor to say that he had not received any letters in favor of it from Chase City, though he told me that he knew you personally and one other lady, and both were favorable. Please attend to this at once. I am sorry to hear that you are confined to your home. We have suffered very much from the sickness in the families of many of our workers; especially is this the case with young Virginia McKennery, whose mother is now ill in bed. If you cannot go to Boydton please send some letters over there and do what you can to organize that neighborhood in the interest of our bill, especially by getting letters written to the delegates and senators from the district, as well as to the Governor, by as many people as possible.
