Hon. Wm. A Richardson,
Acting Secretary of the Treasury.
I have received your letter of this date, with the accompanying papers, all relating to the case of William S. Grimes, of Kentucky, arising under the Internal Revenue Laws.
I recommend that it be compromised on the terms proposed, namely, on payment of the $10 as tax, and $50, as specific penalty.
E. R. Hoar,
