United States Land Office, )

Your letter of the 24th ult., stating
that you would publish in The Asto
bian (as an item of news, without
cost) a list of patents remaining un
called for in this office, has been re
In response to your kind offer I
have to say that there are now in this
office about fifteen hundred patents
ready for delivery.
It would be quite a job to make out
a list of said patents, stating the
name.of each patentee and the num
ber of each entry.
It would take more time to make
such list than I am able to spare. If
the holder of a certificate or receipt
(issued from this office) will send such
certificate or receipt to this office,
stating his or her postoffico address,
the patent called for will, if it is here,
be transmitted to such person by
mail, free of any expense.
If the patent is not here the certifi
cate or receipt will be returned to the
As a general fhinc the patent for a
claim is received here irom the gen
eral land office about eight months
or a ytar after date of tbo certificate
or receipt; so a certificate or receipt
dated within a year past should not be
sent here unless notice has been re
ceived by the claimant or holder that
the patent for the same is in this of
fice. However, an inquiry as to whether
a patjnt may be in this office will al
ways meet with ready response, as I
wish to have the patents promptly
ran into tue Hands of the persons
properly entitled to them.
Jfor over four yeras last past it has
been the rule of this office, when
patents have been received here from
the general land office, to notify each
claimaut to whom patent issues, by
mail to. the postoffice nearest his
claim, to the effeot that the patent
for his claim has been received and
that the same will be delivered to him
upon surrender of the certificate of
receipt issued to him from this office.
There are patents in this office which
were issued from the government
over 25 years ago; and others is
sued at various" dates since then,
numbering, as aforesaid, about
1,500. These patents should be ob
tained from this office by the pat
entees or the present owners and put
on record in the proper county of
fices. In order to obtain the delivery of a
patent the certificate or receipt issued
from the land office for the claim
must be surrendered
