Secretary of State, and now Judge of the 15th Judicial Circuit.]

INDIANAPOLIS, IND., 12th January, 1869.

Having served nine years as Secretary of the Senate of Indiana, and the duties of the position necessarily having made me familiar with parliamentary rules, Major 0. M. Wilson presented bis Digest on that subject to me for inspection. I have no hesitation in saying that it is the most thorough and complete of anything of the kind which has come under my observation, and should be in the hands of every gentleman connected with legislative assemblies.
