He was admitted to the bar at Brownsville the same year, and has been engaged regularly in the practice ever since, having met with good and well deserved success. Mr. Bond is an unswerving Democrat in politics, and has figured prominently in the political affairs of his county and district. In 1882 he was the Democratic nominee for State senator, but was defeated, owing to the hopeless minority of the party in the district, running, however, about 1,000 votes ahead of the ticket.

On August 2, 1877, he married Miss Mildred BOND, a daughter of James Bond. The two living children: Minnie and Irene. Mr. Bond is recognized as an enterprising and reliable citizen and legal practitioner.
