Hon. D. J. Mould,

House of Representatives,



Your letter of the 25th inst. requesting a copy of an opinion of the Attorney General relative to laws affecting paymasters, has been received. After referring to the office record of opinions, I have to reply that there is no opinion rendered on the subject you mention.

Very respectfully, &c.

Chief Clerk.
