Hon. A. T. Akerman,
Yorkville, S. C.
My dispatch of yesterday was written in the Supreme Court Room while I was engaged in the argument of a case. On reëxamination of the original draft of the first Proclamation prepared by you, I find that you doubtless intended to name Union County, but it looks more like Marion. Shall I prepare a Proclamation as to Union County?
B. H. Bristow,
