Messrs. Field, Davis, & Co.
14 College Place, New York.
I am directed by the Attorney General to inform you that, while it is impossible for him to undertake for any private interest in the matter referred to in your letter of 23d inst., he has regarded the statement of your letter as a disparagement of the official fitness of U. S. Attorney Strickland for his place, and that he has called his attention to your complaint, and desired from him an explanation.
Very respectfully yours,
M. F. Pleasants,
