Gen. Geo. H. Sharpe,
U. S. Marshal,
New York City.
I send herewith a Commission for Judge Pierrepont in the Irving case. Not knowing in which court it is, or the distinct offence named in the indictment, I am unable to describe the case more particularly
If Mr. Bristow made with Judge Pierrepont an arrangement that the Judge should represent the Government, deliver the commission; otherwise return it. See Mr. Bristow and take his direction, if he is in New York; if he is not, do as above directed.
A. T. Akerman,
