June 29, 1869. Hon. Geo. S. Boutwell, Secretary of the Treasury. Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 28th inst. relating to the Internal Revenue case of Willis Craft, of Georgia.—He proposes to pay, as a compromise, $391:33, as tax—$84:58, assessed penalty—$500: specific penalty—Total $875:91, and all costs.—In the papers accompanying your letters I find no Report from the District Attorney; but perhaps it was impracticable to obtain such a Report. I recommend an acceptance of the terms of the compromise offered. Very Respectfully, &c. &c. W. A. Field, Acting Attorney General.
