STATE HEADQUARTERS, RICHMOND, VA. COMMERCIAL BUILDING, SECOND STREET BETWEEN BROAD AND GRACE July 8-1915. My dear Mrs. Townsend: Find herewith enclosed a statement showing Mrs. Stoner's expenses in connection with her trip to Richmond and Norfolk. Richmond assumes the expense of July 2nd & 4th, $5.65, leaving to Norfolk the item of the 6th inst. $5.00 You were certainly served a horrid trick by the Union and its sympathizers. Had I been in sympathy with them to begin with, their unscrupulous use of the machinery of other leagues would have shown me the "error of my ways." I do not see how they can justify their policy of "break in and take everything in sight," and should think it would turn from them many, or should I say, ALL, who hear about it. Mrs. Valentine spoke at the University of Va Tuesday to 1200 students, in the afternoon on the Charlottesville C.H. Green, and addresses an open-air meeting tonight at 6th & Broad. She goes to Warm Springs, Va., Saturday, where you can communicate with her if desired up to the 25th. Cordially yours Alice O. Taylor.
