-2- OFFICE OF THE MAYOR CITY OF NORFOLK, VIRGINIA I am a firm believer in the right of women to vote. You speak in your letter of asking me to make an introductory address on Friday, the 21st of this month. Here again I hate to have to disappoint you, but I have a prior engagement for that evening. Beginning Sunday, the 16th, I have accepted invitations up to and including Saturday, the 22nd, and on one day have two engagements, morning and evening, so you will see how absolutely my time is taken up for the whole week. Believe me, Mrs. Townsend, that I appreciate very much, indeed, your personal consideration so kindly expressed, and I trust that I am worthy of your confidence. With very kindest regards, I am, my dear Madam, Respectfully, Wyndham R. Mayo, Mayor.
