Act'g Comm'r, Internal Revenue.
Your note of this date, stating that the Commissioner of Internal Revenue desires me to sit with him in the hearing of an argument on Saturday next, has been received. I regret to say that the pressure of official business will prevent me from complying with his request.

and acting Attorney General.
