To the Senate and House of Representatives:
I transmit herewith a communication from the Secretary of the Interior, setting forth the necessity for an increased number of law clerks in the office of the Assistant Attorney-General in the Department of the Interior, because of the growing amount of business in that office.
The matter is commended to the attention and favorable action of Congress.
