John D. Defrees, Esq.

Congressional printer.


In reply to your inquiry of the 26th instant, the Attorney General directs me to say that he would like to have fifteen (15,) copies of the "Blue Book," about to be printed—being the number of copies usually furnished to this office.

Respectfully, &c.

M. F. Pleasants,

Chief Clerk.
