Sept. 20, 1871.
Hon. W. W. Brookings, Associate Justice.
I have received your letter of the 14th instant asking for a leave of absence from the Territory for five days—and in reply inform you that such leave is granted.
I think that in all cases where absence is needed by Judges of the Territories, no matter for what length of time, application therefor should be made to this Department.
B. H. Bristow, Solicitor Gen'l,
& Acting Attorney Gen'l.
