To the people of Henrico
John R. Garnett.

    Reasons for Electing him to the Convention.

  1. 1. He is a consistent and intelligent citizen of your county, and fully identified with you as such.
  2. 2. He has served his fellow-citizens as Presiding Justice of the county for many years, and has proved himself to be a useful public officer. He is also the only citizen of the county now in the field.

    Reasons why Mr. Wickham should not be elected.

  1. 1. He does not reside in Henrico, but is a citizen of Hanover.
  2. 2. He is now a member of the Senate, and, by common consent, it is not deemed proper or delicate for a member of the Assembly to complicate himself with two legislative positions, especially when he is a non-resident of your county.
