Hon. P. H. Morgan,
U. S. Attorney, New Orleans, La.
The Attorney General directs me to transmit you the enclosed copy of a letter from the commissioner of the General Land Office, relative to certain suits in Louisiana, to which the U. S. is a party. Concurring in the views of the Commissioner, the Attorney General declines to give any instructions in regard to the cases mentioned, & leaves them to your own sense of official duty.
Very respectfully, yours,
M. F. Pleasants,
