H. G. Heartt, Esq.

U. S. Appr. to U. S. Courts,

New Orleans, La


In reply to your letter of the 7th instant, I am directed by the Acting Attorney General to say that this office has no authority to instruct in the premises; and your letter has accordingly been referred to the Commission of Internal Revenue, who will act upon the matter as he may deem right.

Very respectfully yours,

M. F. Pleasants, Chief Clerk.
