August 24, 1868.

T. C. Sweeney, Esq.

Wheeling, West Virginia.


Your letter of the 19th instant has been received. This office has communicated its views in regard to the case of the steamboat Frolic, in previous correspondence with Mr. T. Sweeney, of Wheeling. The case will be determined at the next term of the Supreme Court. Cases involving the same question have been argued, and this one was continued, in order that the claimants might be represented by counsel.

Very respectfully, yours &c.

J. Hubley Ashton,

Acting Attorney General.
