Hon. C. M. Hawley,

Associate Justice Sup. Court,

Salt Lake City, Utah.


The Attorney General directs me to say in reply to your letter of the 15th inst. that the condition of your health, as therein stated, is a sufficient justification for the leave of absence which you request—and it is therefore granted, as desired.

Very respectfully yours,

M. F. Pleasants,

Chief Clerk.

Leave of absence.
