Feb. 23, 1871. Mr. George T. Vaughan, Linden, Texas. Sir: I have received yours of the 18th ultimo. I cannot give you the certificate which you request. Recommendations for pardon are presumed to come from disinterested sources, and therefore I do not see how a certificate of the sort which you desire me to give, can be useful in the settlement of any proper business transaction. Very respectfully, A. T. Akerman, Attorney General.
