January 31, 1868.

Major A. C. Richards,

Superintendent of Police,

Washington, D. C.


I am directed by the Attorney General to request that you will furnish this Office with a statement of the Justices of the Peace now in Commission, and acting as Magistrates in each ward of this city.

An early reply will much oblige.

Very respectfully, yours,

M. F. Pleasants,

Chief Clerk.
