The Attorney General desires me to say, in reply to your inquiry of the 25th inst., that information of the ratification of the Fifteenth Amendment has not yet been officially received. As soon as so received, it will be published in a proclamation by the President.

Very respectfully,

M. F. Pleasants,

Chief Clerk.
