Dec. 26, 1871.

D. T. Corbin, Esq.

U. S. Attorney,

Columbia, S. C.

Sir:

Your letter of the 19th enclosing the list of persons arrested, and placed in custody at Yorkville, has been received.

I thank you for your promptness in forwarding this.

I suppose that these are the only persons arrested in South Carolina by the military without warrant? Am I right?

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
