June 3, 1869.

A. Haller Geass, Esq.

735 Walnut st.



Your letter of the 2d inst. has been received by the Attorney Gen'l, and I am directed to say in reply that a blank form of official oath was not sent you, for two reasons: First, this office has none; and Secondly, the statute requires that your oath shall be taken before the governor, secretary, judge, or justice of the peace, of the Territory.

Very Resp. yours,

M. F. Pleasants,

Ch. Clerk.
