Feb. 13, 1871.
Hon. Columbus Delano,
Secretary of the Interior.
The District Attorney of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania desires to know whether any money was advanced to Percival B. Spear, and how much of it, if any, has been properly accounted for by him.
The object of this enquiry is to ascertain what bail is proper in the case.
The bond which Spear is supposed to have forged with the name of the surety, is date Dec. 27, 1870, and is an official bond of Spear as special agent for the Sioux Indians at Cheyenne River Agency, Dakota Territory.
Very respectfully, &c.
A. T. Akerman,
relating to P. B. Spear (E. Penn)
see Ins. Book B. p. 74.—
