James H. Mackie Esq.

p. o. box 3701,

New York.


I have received your letter of the 10th instant, with that of Mr. Cox, and the accompanying briefs, for which I thank you.

I am sure that if no unexpected business comes to this office, and my health holds out in this hot weather, I shall be able to render the opinion in a few days.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
