Hon. Geo. S. Boutwell,
Secretary of the Treasury.
I have considered the Internal revenue case of C. Borden of the State of New York. He proposes to pay, as a compromise, a specific penalty of $200—to consent to a forfeiture of the stills and distilling apparatus seized, and to pay all costs.
I recommend that his proposal be accepted.
W. A. Field,
Acting Attorney General
