Mr. Orville Burke,
Fort Sill, Indian Terr.
The rules of this Department forbid me to give opinions upon such questions as that presented in your letter of January 28, 1871, except at the call of the President, or the Secretary of War; and for that reason I am unable to comply with your request.
Very respectfully, &c,
A. T. Akerman,
