June 19, 1869. Hon. W. A. Richardson, Acting Secretary of the Treasury. Sir: I have received your letter of this date, with papers enclosed, all relating to a libel of information against the steamer Matilda arising under the Internal Revenue laws. The claimant proposes that on the payment of $50 as a penalty and the costs of suit, the libel be dismissed, and the steamer be restored him. I recommend that this compromise of the suit be made. The papers are returned. I remain, yours very respectfully, E. R. Hoar, Attorney General.
