Sir: Many complaints have been made to this Department of a very serious character against the Marshal of the Northern District of Florida. Will you be good enough to make some inquiry about him, and let me know; - and also recommend the name of a man for his place, in case I should remove the present incumbent. A Mr. Lancaster has been named to me. He is a son of the late Judge Lancaster, who was personally known to you, as his son may be. I am, sir, respectfully, Yours, &c. James Speed Attorney General.
