Dec. 18, 1871.
Hon. Lyman Trumbull,
Sir: Judge Blodgett, of Illinois, has submitted to me the draft of a bill for supplying the records of the U.S. Courts, destroyed by the Chicago fire—and of a joint resolution for the relief of Mr. Campbell, the Marshal. He informs me that he has sent similar papers to you.
As he invites my criticism I transmit herewith his draft of the joint resolution, with an interlineation in pencil, which it seems to me will provide against a possible misconstruction.
I have no suggestion to make on the subject of the bill.
Very respectfully, &c.
A. T. Akerman,
bill for U.S. records, Chicago.
