PUBLISHED BY ORDER OF THE SECRETARY OF WAR.
BUREAU OF INSULAR AFFAIRS,
Washington, October 30, 1901. Dear Sir: Your reports upon the various questions of law arising during the military occupation of the islands ceded or yielded by Spain under the treaty of Paris, have been of such value to me in deciding the questions treated that I have determined to have them printed for the use of the officers concerned in the government of the islands. Will you please to prepare them for publication as soon as may be convenient? Very truly yours,
Secretary of War. Hon. CHARLES E. Magoon, Law Officer, Division of Insular Affairs,
War Department, Washington, D. C.
