S. S. Cox, Esq.
Counsellor at Law,
132 Broadway, New York
This office cannot agree with you that the Executive has any power to relieve the forfeiture in the case of the Wm Bagaley.
The only course, therefore will be to argue it in the Supreme Court.
Respectfully, &c. yours,
J. Hubley Ashton,
Assistant Attorney Gen'l.
