Informs Governor Chamberlain that in
asmuch as the Interior Department holds

the Governor refuses to make request.

The department holds that the State t
Oregon sold and received pay for these

permit the state to withhold title to the

before when Governor Chamberlain
sought to repudiate the sales of these
