December 17, 1869. Hon. J. R. Hawkins, U. S. House of Representatives. Sir: By direction of the Attorney General I transmit herewith certified copies of the papers referred to in your letter of the 15th and 16th instants. The statement of Mr. Taft comprises a very large number of petty items and details which I do not suppose you desire, and which it would take a longer time to copy than is at the disposal of our limited clerical force. I therefore send only the total, and his certificate. If this should not be sufficient, however, I will prepare a full copy. Very respectfully, Your obd't serv't, M. F. Pleasants, Ch. Clerk.
