April 24, 1871. T. J. Durant, Esq. Washington, D.C. Sir: I have received yours of the 20th instant, suggesting that compensation may be due to the estate of the late Edmund Randolph, for professional services in the case of Castillero, vs. The United States. I have caused examination to be made, of the correspondence on file in this office, and cannot discover that Mr. Randolph was ever retained by the Attorney General. If it can be shown to me that he was so employed, and was never compensated, the claim shall receive consideration. But as at present advised, I am not authorized to pay it. Very respectfully, A. T. Akerman, Attorney General.
