[Franklin D. Richards]
The parties political are badly disintegrated Democratic Republican, Peoples party-Washakies, Dem[ocratic] Silverites, Rep[ublican] Silverites, McKinley Goldbugs, Bryan silverites. I took the liberty to scratch & make up a Ticket of such names as I felt willing to vote & did not inform my friends or my family who I voted for.
