Sept. 11, 1871.

P. S. Wilson, Esq.

Cheyenne, Wyoming Terr.


Your telegram of this date is received. There are three Judges for Wyoming, and one of them ought to be permanently present in the District which embraces Cheyenne. I have sent a copy of your telegram to the Hon. J. H. Howe, Chief Justice, and I trust there is no cause of complaint—or, if there be cause, it will be promptly removed.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman

Att'y. Gen'l.

Wyoming Terr.
