ount. The three hundred bales of cotton upon the Little Ada belong to the State of Georgia, and I propose to export it on State account to pay for blankets for Georgia soldiers, and if any surplus, to apply it to the purchase of cotton-cards for the people of the State, under an act of the Legislature. I deny your right to repeal the act of Congress by your order, or to refuse clearance to the State under any just rule of construction which you can apply to the plain proviso in the act of Congress. I therefore, again demand clearance as a right, not as a favor, and waiving for the present the question of your right to ask it of the State, offer to pay export duties. Joseph E. Brown. Hon. C. Memminger, Secretary of the Treasury, Richmond, Va. Richmond, May 23, 1864. Governor Joseph E. Brown: Your telegram of the twenty-first instant is received. Clearance cannot be given except in conformity with the regulations of the President. C. G. Memminger, Secretary of the Treasury.
