Attorney Gen's Office.

August 8, 1865.

Hon. Joseph Casey,

Oil City, Venango co. Penn.


I enclose you a copy of a letter received from the Auditor for the Post Office Dep't. relative to the case of Col. McCoy. I referred your letter to him, as the case is one peculiarly within the jurisdiction of his office.

I am sir, very respectfully,

J. Hubley Ashton,

Assistant Attorney General.
