Sept. 13, 1871.

Thomas H. Talbot, Esq,

Assistant Attorney General.

Sir:

After consideration of the case of Rebecca A. G. Minor, Executrix of William J. Minor, deceased, which is the subject of your letter of the 22d ultimo, I think that it is not worth while to take or prosecute an appeal therein.

Very respectfully, &c.

B. H. Bristow, Solicitor Gen'l,

& Acting Attorney Gen'l.
