January 28, 1869. Hon. P. E. Brocchus, Associate Justice, New Mexico, Baltimore, Md. Sir: I had supposed that long before this you had terminated your absence, without leave, from the territory of New Mexico, by a return thither, as you informed me was your intention when you called upon me here. I enclose a copy of a letter I have received from the Hon. C. P. Clever, Delegate from the Territory, who informs me that you are still here, and that ill consequences are suffered from your absence. I shall be willing to receive any explanation of this prolonged absence that you may have to make to me. Very Resp. yours, &c. Wm. M. Evarts, Attorney General.
