Dear Countrymen:

This committee of (Slavs) voters in New York State ask you to exercise your patriotic right and vote on Election Day for the Honorable Edward R. Finch who is now a candidate for Associate Justice of the Court of Appeals.

It is especially desired by us that you vote for Justice Finch for the reason that he has always been sympathetic to the interests of our colony in America during all the eighteen years which he has served as Judge of the New York Supreme Court and Appellate Division, from which he will be elevated by this election to the Court of Appeals at Albany.

It is also proper and right that Justice Finch should so be elected for the reason that, although he is a member of the Republican party, he has received the nomination for this position from the Democratic party which was done in order to keep the Court of Appeals, the highest court in this State, non-partisan and free from all political obligations on the part of the judges when elected.

The Lawyers’ Committee for Non-Partisan Judicial Nominations stated in its resolutions endorsing Justice Finch, as follows:

“Whereas the Honorable Edward R. Finch, Presiding Justice of the Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court, First Department, has served for eighteen years as a Justice of the Supreme Court of this State, having been twice nominated by combined action of the two principal political parties, and during his long term of service he has discharged his judicial duties ably and well.

“Whereas in recognition of this principle Judge Finch, a Republican was nominated by the Democratic party for promotion to the Court of Appeals, and failure to elect him would be a blow to the principal of non-partisan judicial nominations.”

Be sure to vote for Justice Finch under the star—vote every star.

If convenient it would help our cause if, in addition to voting yourself, you would also speak to your friends.

Vote for a friend of our colony!
