I herewith transmit a copy of a letter from R. McP. Smith, Esq., U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee, in reference to a pension claim of A. E. Garrett, supposed to be fraudulent; and I have the honor to request that the certified copy of Garrett's affidavit which the District Attorney requests, may be furnished to him.
