Lucien Eaton, Esq.

U. S. Commissioner

St. Louis, Mo.

Sir:

The letter of John S. Stott, which you transmitted to this office with your endorsement, dated the 9th inst. has been received and considered. I have sent a copy of it to the U. S. Marshal for the Northern Dist. of New York, with an intimation that Mr. Stott is not a fit person to remain in the public service.

Very respectfully, &c.

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
