November 20, 1868.

R. H. Dana, Esq.

Boston, Mass.


I have the honor to enclose a copy of a letter I have this day addressed to S. Ferguson Beach, Esq. U. S. Attorney for the District of Virginia, and to say that he will be in attendance at the Court in Richmond, prepared to make the arrangement suggested in my letter. The term commences on Monday, the 23d inst., I learn, and not the 25th as has heretofore been my impression.

I have the honor to be,

Very respectfully,

Wm. M. Evarts,

Attorney General.
