January 29, 1867.

Hon. P. H. Morgan,

U. S. Attorney, New Orleans, La.


The Attorney General directs me to transmit you the enclosed copy of a letter from the commissioner of the General Land Office, relative to certain suits in Louisiana, to which the U. S. is a party. Concurring in the views of the Commissioner, the Attorney General declines to give any instructions in regard to the cases mentioned, & leaves them to your own sense of official duty.

Very respectfully, yours,

M. F. Pleasants,

Chief Clerk.
