Rev. John H. Hunter,
Sir: I have received your letter of the 19th instant.
The subject of purchasing lands for public uses belongs entirely to Congress, and this Department has no control over it. Therefore I suggest that you lay your views before some member of Congress.
A. T. Ackerman,
purchasing public lands.
