Macon Miss Aug 19/75
Gov A. Ames
I understand that Dr Allgood is endeavoring to induce you to remove our sheriff Capt Connor by misrepresenting him to you. I know Capt Connor is an honest man & has made us a good and faithful sheriff, and I am confident that he has not refused to settle his account with the Treasurer & is ever ready to settle any just & legal demands with any & every body.
The Dr has been endeavoring for the last 18 months to injure the Capt’s popularity with our Republicans, to build himself up. Last year they had the same disagreement that they now have & we ^the Executive Committee^ had a full investigation of the matter & the Capt was most clearly vindicated.
The Capt is a strong administration man, and I would advise you Gov’ under the circumstances to say to Allgood & the The Treasurer to go to the circuit court & have their claims adjusted.
I would not remove the sheriff to gratify a little political clique.
