January 27, 1870. Hon. J. W. Douglas, Acting Commissioner Internal Revenue. Sir: The letter of Mr. Tracy, which you refer to me, relates to a matter over which my Department has no control. I therefore return it, with the suggestion that it might be well to send it to the Judiciary Committee of the Senate or House of Representatives, if the writer is, (as I presume he is,) a gentleman whose statements are entitled to consideration. Respectfully, E. R. Hoar, Attorney General. (letter enc.)
Official action declined.
