If I correctly apprehended the question it was of an entirely different order. It asked the Secretary of State whether he had received the design of a certain flag. It has been the custom over the years for the secretary of state to receive the designs which are sent to the government from time to time, and to file them in his department. I know this because I was once secretary of state. It therefore seems to me the question comes within the accepted ambit of the functions of the Secretary of State.
