In his opening message he writes, in part: "These documents contain all the "orders or instructions" to any military, naval, or other officer of the government, "in relation to the establishment or organization of civil government in any portion of the territory of Mexico which has or might be taken possession of by the army or navy of the United States". Contains much information with regard to New Mexico, Arizona and California. Ex Ben E. Pingenot.
