Expert Praise for Chief E. V. Farley

Chief E. V. Farley, of Petersburg, Va., recently received a letter from Chief W. H. Joynes, of Richmond, which in part reads as follows: “In a recent edition of the ‘Petersburg Daily Progress’ I noticed with pleasure that your Board of Fire Commissioners had, as usual, decided to re-elect you. and the other men under you— also some nice things about you. It is natural and proper that you should be returned as long as you want the position, and Petersburg should be congratulated and proud to have a man of your ability in your chosen line at the head of its department. Without flattery, I sincerely think that your department is well cared for from its shoulders up, but how you can do the work you do with your limited equipment and men. has always been a puzzle to me. I have been to your city after some of your larger fires, and the result of your work speaks volumes in your behalf, especially when your limited force is considered.”
