Mr. Robert H. Knox,
I have received your letter of the first instant, and also a letter from the District Attorney upon the same subject.
I have directed the District Attorney not to institute proceedings, until he shall receive a different direction, against persons not holding office, who have been relieved by Act of Congress, under the circumstances referred to in your letter.
A. T. Akerman,
