Feb. 23, 1871. Hon. J. A.J. Creswell, Postmaster General, Sir: I have received a letter from Mr. William F. Bowers, Postmaster at Brownsville, Hart County, Georgia, informing me that he has resigned his office, and desiring that his son, Bunyan Bowers, be appointed in his place. He adds that his son labors under no disabilities, is competent, and will be acceptable to the community. He asks me to aid in the premises, which I can only do by saying that Mr. Bowers, senior, is well known to me as a respectable man, and firm republican, of a good Union stock and record, late a member of the Senate of Georgia—and that I give full credit to his representations in the matter. I do not know the son, but believe what his father says about him. Very respectfully, &c. A. T. Akerman, Attorney General.
Mr. Bowers, P.M. Georgia
