November 26, 1869.

A. H. Garland, Esq.

Little Rock, Ark.


The Attorney General directs me to say, in answer to your letter of the 20th inst. that he is unwilling to agree to the arrangement suggested for the postponement of cases Nos. 323 and 333.—Those cases will be reached at the next term of the Supreme Court, although it is impossible to say at what period of the term. If you are not able to be present personally, you are at liberty to file such printed argument as may best supply the place of an oral presentation of the cases.

Very respectfully yours,

M. F. Pleasants,

Chief Clerk.

Sup. Court cases Nos. 323 and 333.
