Hon. J. W. Douglas,
Acting Commissioner Internal Revenue.
The letter of Mr. Tracy, which you refer to me, relates to a matter over which my Department has no control. I therefore return it, with the suggestion that it might be well to send it to the Judiciary Committee of the Senate or House of Representatives, if the writer is, (as I presume he is,) a gentleman whose statements are entitled to consideration.
E. R. Hoar,
Official action declined.
