December 5, 1870. Hon. R. S. Greene, Asso. Justice of Washington Terr. Olympia, W. T. Sir: I have received your letter of the 17th ultimo. It fails to give me the information which I desired, to wit: the exact time for which you wish leave of absence from your Territory. Regarding the absence of Territorial Judges from their Districts as very disadvantageous to the public service, I do not feel at liberty to authorize it except for good reason and for a specific time. I appreciate the reasons which you offer, and, therefore, allow a leave of absence from the 20th of December instant to the 15th of March next. This absence is for a term unusually long, and is only allowed in consequence of the peculiar domestic reasons which you urge. Very respectfully, A. T. Akerman, Attorney General.
