National Asylum, D.V.S.
The Attorney General directs me to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 5th instant, containing a complaint against the Treasurer of the Soldiers' Home at Washington, D. C., and to say in reply to the questions asked relating to your pension that he is at liberty to reply to such questions only when asked by the President, or the Head of one of the Executive Departments. He has, however, referred your letter to Hon. B. F. Butler, President of the National Asylum, D. V. S., with whom your future correspondence on this subject should be conducted.
