November 9, 1868.

Hon. C. C. Clay,

Huntsville, Ala.


Mrs. Clay having brought to my notice the subject of the proceedings, now or heretofore pending against you or your property in the District of Alabama, with a suggestion that it was apprehended that some steps to your prejudice might be taken in the premises at the coming term of the Court for that District, I have addressed the District Attorney a letter on the subject, of which I beg leave to enclose a copy for your information.

I have the honor to be,

Very Respectfully,

Wm. M. Evarts,

Attorney General
