Oct. 7, 1871.

Hon. George S. Boutwell,

Secretary of the Treasury.

Sir:

I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 30th ultimo,—and in compliance with the request therein made, have caused a circular letter to be issued to the District Attorneys, Marshals, and Clerks of the U.S. Courts, relative to a vigorous prosecution of all violations of the Internal Revenue laws. A copy of said circular, which I trust will accomplish the desired effect, is herewith enclosed.

Very respectfully, &c.

B. H. Bristow, Solicitor Gen'l

& Acting Attorney General.
