I have the honor to enclose herewith certain papers relating to an application of James Christie, for the entry of a nolle prosequi on an indictment pending against him in the Eastern District of Missouri, wherein he is charged, with David D. Wright and others, with having committed frauds in the manufacture and removal of distilled spirits. I should be pleased to receive from you an expression of opinion whether the application of Christie should be granted.
Please return the enclosed papers, when you are done with them.
