November 18, 1867.

G. B. Lamar, Esq.

Savannah, Geo.


In answer to yours of the 4th inst. I have to say that upon application to the Secretary of the Treasury I was informed that your box of papers had been returned by him to the War Department. I have since communicated your request to the Secretary of War ad int., and he declines to surrender any of the papers.

Very respectfully yours,

Henry Stanbery.
