Your letter of July 25, to his Excellency the President, was referred by him, on the 7th instant, to the Att'y General, by whom I am directed to say to you that so far as he is advised, your only remedy is to bring suit against [those?] by whom your property is detained, or in whose possession it is, to recover the same.
I am madam, very respectfully
Mrs. Mary J. Black,
New Orleans, Louisiana.
