Mr. Edward Foster,
The President has referred to me the communication of yourself and Henrietta Foster to him complaining that you are deprived of rights to which you are entitled under the Constitution and laws of the United States.
I suggest that you state the facts to the U. S. District Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, who will inform you if the law of the United States affords you any redress, and how to get it.
A. T. Akerman,
