To the President.


I have the honor to submit to you, in reply to the Resolution of the House of Representatives of December 10, 1866, calling for information in regard to pardons granted, the enclosed partial Report, which embraces all the pardons granted to the higher officials lately in rebellion.

It is impossible, with the small clerical force allowed by law to this office, to reply to said resolution in full, before the adjournment of Congress.

I have the honor to be

Very respectfully,

Henry Stanbery

Attorney General.
