Hon. Hugh McCulloch,
Secretary of the Treasury.
I have the honor to return herewith the papers received with your letter of the 22d ult., relating to the title to a tract of land situated on Chambers Island, in Green Bay, Wisconsin, (part of fractional Sec. 32, in Township 32, N., Range 26, E.,) desired for a Light House site,—and to state, that, upon examination of these papers, I am of opinion that the proposed conveyance of Lewis S. Williams, and wife, would vest in the United States a good & valid title to the premises referred to.
I am, Sir,
John M. Binckley,
Acting Attorney Gen'l.
