Oct. 21, 1871.

Hon. A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General,

Yorkville, S. C.

My dispatch of yesterday was written in the Supreme Court Room while I was engaged in the argument of a case. On reëxamination of the original draft of the first Proclamation prepared by you, I find that you doubtless intended to name Union County, but it looks more like Marion. Shall I prepare a Proclamation as to Union County?

B. H. Bristow,

Solicitor General.
