Hon. John Titus,

Chief Justice Sup. Court Arizona



Your letter of the 25th ult. asking for leave of absence from your Territory, does not specify the duration of the desired leave.

You have leave of absence from the 20th of March next for three months,—as long a term as I feel at liberty to grant, without fuller information, both of the necessity of the protracted absence, and of its effect on the public business of the Territory.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman, Attorney Gen'l.

leave of absence.
