Dec. 27, 1871.

Wm. E. Parker, Esq.

U. S. Marshal,

Galveston, Texas


Your letter of the 20th inst. inquiring whether the expenses of Assistant Assessors, Collectors, and Special Detectives in the Internal Revenue service, who have attended your court as witnesses on the part of the U. S. would be allowed at the Treasury, has been referred by me to the First Comptroller of the Treasury, from whom you will probably receive an answer on the subject.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.

Court expenses, Texas
