November 24, 1868.

D.W. Middleton, Esq.

Clerk of the Supreme Court United States


I am in receipt of your letter of the 20th inst. relative to the cases of Flanders, v. Tweed, and I have requested the Secretary of the Treasury to advise me whether these are cases in which the Attorney General should appear for the Treasury Agent.— I will advise you of his answer. In the meantime I return the letter of Mr. Whitaker, which you enclosed.

Very Respectfully, &c.

Wm. M. Evarts,

Attorney General.
