J. N. McClanahan, Esq.
I am daily receiving communications with enclosures like those in yours of the 5th inst. I do not wonder that honest men are enraged at receiving such. It is, however, not so much an attempted fraud upon the Government, as an attempted fraud upon yourself. If you should send the parties the desired moneys, you would probably receive a package of brown paper, or some other worthless matter in return.
A. T. Akerman,
