January 19, 1870. E. Hinds, Esq. Hempstead, L. I. N. Y. Dear sir: I do not see that my being Attorney General requires or enables me to give you assistance or advice in the case to which you refer, which you would not obtain as well, and with more propriety, from any respectable lawyer, in your own neighborhood. There is nothing in the Civil Rights Bill, that I am aware of, that provides against the disagreement of a jury in trying a question of fact. Very respectfully, &c. E. R. Hoar, Attorney General.
Official action declined.
