Wm. Dorsheimer, Esq.
Buffalo, New York.
I have received your letter of the 2d instant, but cannot find that any such letter as the one to which you refer was written to you. I do find, however, a letter bearing date the 7th of January last, upon a similar subject, i. e., the liability of district Attorneys to account, in their emolument returns for fees received for services rendered at the request of the Head of an Executive Department. This is the only letter I can find upon this subject addressed to you by me.
B. H. Bristow, Solicitor General,
and Acting Attorney Gen'l.
