Nov. 1, 1871.

H. B. Swoope, Esq, U. S. Attorney,

Pittsburgh, Penn.


In answer to your letter of the 30th ultimo, I have to say that the prosecution against J. G. Proper should be promptly and vigorously pressed, and that your intention so to press it is fully approved by the Department.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
