Charles F. Holly, Esq.
Denver, Colorado T.
In reply to your letter of the 8th ult. I am directed by the Acting Attorney General to say, that it is not believed in this Office, that sufficient color of right, under the long-settled practice of the Government, & the circumstaces of the case, exists, to warrant consent for the use of the name of the United States, in the proposed suit.
Very respectfully yours,
M. F. Pleasants,
