Sept. 29, 1871.
Hon. W. W. Belknap,
Secretary of War.
I have this morning received a dispatch from District Attorney Davis of New York in which he advises me that in his opinion the conviction of Hodge of a felony, by court martial, will not render him incompetent to testify against Polhamus and Jackson.
B. H. Bristow, Solicitor Gen'l,
& Acting Attorney Gen'l.
