Scope & Content [Executive Removal.]

Whereas, I, George H. Drew Governor of the State of Florida, under and by virtue of the power vested in me by the 19th Section, Article V., of the Constitution of the State of Florida, did, on the Eighth day of January 1877, remove Charles W. Lewis from the office of Superintendent of County Schools in and for the county of Nassau, for causes, in my judgment, within the said Constitution and entirely sufficient:
Now, Therefore, be it Known, That the said Lewis has ceased to be such Superintendent and that all and singular his acts as such officer, from the date of this notification of removal, are without force or validity.

In Testimony Whereof, I do hereunto set my hand and cause to be affixed the Great Seal of the State at Tallahassee, the Capital, this Eighth day of January A. D. 1877.
