Bristol, Va. Aug 2, 1919. Dear Mrs. Cowles: - Your letter waited my arrival here, about 5 o'clock. I have been trying, according to Mrs. Lewis' suggestion to see the favorable doubtful men, and the doubtful ones, taking in those in favor if I passed thru anyway. I will enclose a brief report and try to send a fuller one later. When I get back to Roanoke, Thursday possibly, I will see whether Mrs. Miles has been able to do anything, and if not I will go to Franklin, Henry, Patrick and Bedford counties.
