Hon. J. A. J. Creswell,
I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 18th instant, referring to certain papers containing an application for the release of the bail of Frank P. Spalding, indicted for robbing the mail at Rutland, Vt. I have addressed the District Attorney of Vermont for information upon the subject. As at present advised I see no reason whatever for allowing the extraordinary favor asked by the applicant.
Very respectfully, &c.
A. T. Akerman,
