Oct. 30, 1866.

To

R. H. Man, Esq.

Dear Sir:

Yours of the 25th was rec'd to-day. I have the pleasure to inform you that I brought the case of your friend Hatcher to the notice of the President to-day, & that he gave a favorable response to my recommendation for a pardon. When it is made out, it will be sent to him at Memphis, Tenn.

Very respectfully,

Henry Stanbery
