March 12, 1869. Hon. Edward Jordan, Solicitor of the Treasury. Sir: I have the honor to state that I have received the following telegram from Henry S. Fitch, U. S. Attorney for Georgia: "I deem it my duty to report that it is currently rumored that the U. S. Marshal for this State has absconded. I have called the Court's attention to the matter. Shall I examine his bonds & papers?" Signed Henry S. Fitch, U. S. Attorney, & dated Atlanta, March 12, 1869. In as much as your office may be charged with the duty of instituting inquiry into the pecuniary transactions of the Marshal with a view to protect the interests of the government, I deem it proper to communicate to you this information. Very resp. yours. E. R. Hoar, Attorney General.
