Hon. J. R. Lewis,

Boisé City, Idaho.


I have received from the Department of State a commission appointing you to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the Territory of New Mexico, from the first day of July next.

I will thank you to let me know your address, and where you wish the commission sent.

Very respectfully,
