November 8, 1867. L. H. Chandler, Esq. United States Attorney, Norfolk, Va. Sir: I enclose herewith a copy of a memorial addressed to the Attorney General by Dr. Thomas Antisell, setting forth an alleged mistake in selling the same piece of land, which had been confiscated, to two parties, each of whom has received a Deed. The Attorney General directs you to report the facts in the case, with particulars respecting the relative dates, the amount of proceeds from each sale, the disposition which has been made of the proceeds, and your own suggestion of the most proper and expedient course to be taken in the premises. Respectfully, Your obedient servant, John M. Binckley, Assistant Attorney General. [Copy of Mem. enclosed]
