I send you enclosed herewith a letter addressed to the Attorney General by the U. S. Attorney for the Eastern Dist. of Michigan, with the accompanying papers, all relating to a request for a warrant for the removal of an intruder named Joseph Tromblé, alias Trombley, from the Light House Reservation of the United States at the mouth of the Saginaw river in that District.
Will you be kind enough to give me your opinion whether such a warrant should issue?
I will thank you to return the papers enclosed herewith when you are done with them.
Very Resp'lly, &c, W. A. Field,
