M. de Graffeuried, Esq.
I have received your letter of the 6th instant, and regret that the Act appointing the Commission makes no provision for a representation on the part of the United States Government. I fear that the Government will lose in consequence of this omission, but I have no authority to supply defects in the law.
A. T. Akerman,
