Wm. Darlington, Esq.
West Chester, Penn'a.
In answer to your letter of the 9th instant, I beg to say that no printed argument can be submitted in Gray and Darlington until the December term of the Court. Meanwhile, I will look over the case, with either the Attorney or Solicitor General, and let you know our decision.
I am still disposed, should they approve it, to argue the case in writing, but, under the circumstances I do not feel that I am authorized to promise that it shall be done, without consulting them.
The confusion of moving into our new offices has prevented an earlier reply to your note.
Very respectfully, &c.
C. H. Hill,
Assistant Attorney Gen'l.
Gray & Darlington
