Nov. 14, 1871.

Hon. Wm. W. Belknap,

Secretary of War.

Sir:

I transmit for your information a copy of a letter described by the writer as unofficial, from C. W. C. Rowell, Esq., U.S. District Attorney for Arizona.

I am unable to say how much consideration is due to his suggestions. But it is just to him to declare that, according to all my information, he is a zealous and faithful officer.

Very respectfully, &c.

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
