Oct. 24, 1871.

Wm. Darlington, Esq.

West Chester, Penn'a.


In answer to your letter of the 9th instant, I beg to say that no printed argument can be submitted in Gray and Darlington until the December term of the Court. Meanwhile, I will look over the case, with either the Attorney or Solicitor General, and let you know our decision.

I am still disposed, should they approve it, to argue the case in writing, but, under the circumstances I do not feel that I am authorized to promise that it shall be done, without consulting them.

The confusion of moving into our new offices has prevented an earlier reply to your note.

Very respectfully, &c.

C. H. Hill,

Assistant Attorney Gen'l.

Gray & Darlington
