March 25, 1868.

James W. Locke, Esq.

Clerk U. S. Court, Key West, Fla.


By direction of the Attorney General, ad interim, I return herewith the copy of the judgment, &c. in the case of the United States, vs. The Schooners John Williams & Cargo, transmitted in your letter of the 18th inst.

The copy contains not a single date, and is therefore perfectly useless. You are requested to make a new certificate, with the dates of the entries referred to, and forward it at your earliest convenience.

Very respectfully yours,

M. F. Pleasants,

Chief Clerk.
