Hon. William M. Evarts,

Dear Sir:

As you directed I send enclosed your transcribed opinion relative to the wages of Government employés for eight hours daily labor. In the original draft, your own hand writing immediately follows the preliminary statement previously made, of which I have considered it a continuation

Yours very respectfully,

W. F. Peddrick,

Acting Chief Clerk.
