Hon. C. Delano,
Commissioner of Internal Revenue.
I have just received the inclosed telegram from an officer in your Department.
I am not aware that it is a matter with which I have any official connection; and the sending a dispatch to this office without authority, at a charge of $12:29, is not a practice which I wish established.
E. R. Hoar, Attorney General
