To the President.


I have the honor to submit to you the enclosed Report, in reply to a Resolution of the Senate, of December 2, 1867, calling for "a full list of the names of all persons pardoned by the President since May 1st, 1865, who have been convicted of counterfeiting United States Bonds, greenbacks, National Bank currency, fractional currency, or the coin of the United States, with the date of issuing each pardon, reasons for issuing it, and by whom recommended."

I have the honor to be, very respectfully,

your obedient servant,

John M. Binckley,

Assistant Attorney General.
