Hon. J. A.J. Creswell,
I enclose a copy of a letter from Lucius J. Gartrell, Esq. Attorney for Thomas G. Simms, who is defendant in a suit and an indictment in the District Court of the Northern District of Georgia, for Criminal defalcation as Postmaster at Atlanta.
Unless I should learn that the contrary is your wish, I shall inform Mr. Gartrell that I know no
reason for interfering with the regular course of law either in the civil or criminal case.
Very respectfully, &c
A. T. Akerman
