February 17, 1870.
Hon. Thos. J. Durant,
Washington, D. C.
I am directed by the Attorney General to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of this date, and to say in reply that he sees no reason for furnishing to Mr. Stancel a copy of the letter referred to. It is an official communication from the U. S. District Attorney to this office and, as such, confidential. There is nothing in it, however, to prevent its being shown to you, if you desire to see it, and will call at this office for that purpose.
Very respectfully your ob't serv't,
M. F. Pleasants,
case of Mr. Stancel
