Hon. E. McPherson,

House of Representatives.


I have received your letter of the 8th instant informing me that you have selected for the publication of the laws &c. in Virginia, the "State Journal" published at Richmond, in place of the "Press" published at Lynchburg,—and that the two official papers in the state of Virginia now are the "State Journal" at Richmond, and the "National Virginian," at Richmond.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
