Attorney General's Office,

April 9, 1866.


Caleb Baldwin, Esq.

U. S. Attorney, Council Bluffs, Iowa.


You will find herewith a copy of a letter to Lieut. Gen. Grant. You will please investigate the matter, & if you find that the clerk of the court has been guilty of the disgraceful & dishonorable conduct with which he is charged, you will take such steps against him as are warranted by law.

I am, sir, most respectfully,

James Speed

Attorney General.
