B. F. Penniman, Esq.

New York City.


I herewith enclose a copy of our letter of this date to the District Attorney at Boston, in the matter of young Murray. The defendant was probably guilty, but there seems to have been a failure of available evidence, partly in consequence of the pressure of your own private interests.


your obedient serv't,

John M. Binckley,

Assistant Attorney Gen'l.
