Mr. Wm. Gibson,

Twiggs County, Geo.

Sir:

I have received your letter of the 18th instant.

If you know of any Ku Klux lawlessness, make the facts known to the U. S. District Attorney, John D. Pope, of Atlanta, or to his Assistant, Andrew Sloan, of Savannah.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.


Ku Klux, Geo.
