UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS RICHARD SHEPPARD ARNOLD UNITED STATES COURTHOUSE 500 W. CAPITOL, ROOM D444 LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS 72201-3325 (501) 604-5140 Facsimile (501) 604-5149 August 17, 2009 Mr. Rex Terry Hardin, Jesson & Terry Post Office Box 10127 Fort Smith, AR 72903-0127 Mr. Michael Millar Millar Gibson, P.A. Post Office Box 1406 Searcy, AR 72145-1406 Re: Larry Griffis, et al. v. Anadarko E&P Company, LP et al. -- 4:08-CV-01974 Dear Counsel: When this deed was executed in 1936, assuming that oil and gas drilling was well known in White County at that time, why didn't the excellent lawyers for the railroad company simply include oil and gas in the deed? It's not likely that the railroad company wasn't represented by competent counsel. Please give me a short letter brief on this point by noon this Thursday, August 20, 2009. As counsel for each party can probably discern, I find the answer in this case more elusive than I originally thought. Cordially, Wm. R. Wilson, Jr. Original to the Clerk of the Court cc: Other Counsel of Record
