Attorney General's Office.

August 10, 1865.

To the

Secretary of State.


I have the letter of Mr. G. W. Jones to you of date July 31st 1865 before me.

Your circular of 29th May 1865 is so explicit that I cannot see that you can do more than to send to Mr. Jones several copies thereof.

Herewith I send Mr. Jones' letter, & three circulars.

I have the honor to remain, &c.

James Speed,

Attorney General.
