Addressed to Governor Joseph B. Ely, Boston, Massachusetts. In full: "My dear Governor Ely: The bearer of this letter is Herbert Hall Taylor, of Northboro, Massachusetts. Mr. Hall Taylor has been connected with the News Service and similar ac-tivities for a number of years. He is an able and highly respected citizen.

Sincerely yours,". JOSEPH B. ELY (1881-1956) was Governor of Massachusetts (1931-1935).

A Democrat, he also served on the state House of Representatives (1900-1901) and as Lieutenant Governor (1913-1914). As Governor, Walsh was part of an unsuccessful attempt to institute women's suffrage. He also pushed for stricter film censorship after protests against D. W.
