March 21, 1870.

Messrs. Hendricks, Hord & Hendricks,

Indianapolis, Ind.


I have received what purports to be a copy of a citation in a writ of error in a suit in which John S. Williams, Collector, is plaintiff, and Wm. F. Reynolds, agent, &c. defendant, returnable "on the first Monday in December next"— but is not dated. I desire to ask of you whether this writ is returnable on the first Monday of December 1870, or 1869.

Very respectfully,

W. A. Field,

Assistant Attorney Gen'l

Certain suit, &c.
