Recd. copy of the opinion of the
Circuit Court of Appeals in the
case of Charlton v Kelly & Hill.
(2nd Alaska.532). The opinion
affirms my instructions in that
case, and, in my judgment,
makes it the most important
case that I have ever decided.
It finally settles the law for
Alaska on questions of staking,
recording, discovery & possession.
It is creditable to me and the
language of affirmation
very flattering. In view of
all the abuse which has been heaped
upon me in relation to these matters
it is a matter of profound
satisfaction to me.
