April 29, 1871. Hon. Isham Reavis, Associate Justice, &c. Arizona City, Arizona Terr. Sir: Your letter of March 16, 1871, requesting leave of absence, with the accompanying certificate from Dr. Mix, was not received by me until today. I regret that I cannot grant the leave of absence which you desire. The reason will appear from the Executive Order, of which I send you a copy. Though according to all information which I have received upon the subject, your services as a Judge are valuable to your Territory, yet if your health requires so long an absence, as you request, I think that you should vacate the office. Very respectfully, A. T. Akerman, Attorney General.
leave declined
