Joseph A. Ware, Esq.

Solicitor, P. O. Dept.


I am directed by the Attorney General to inquire if you have any further information relative to the P. O. cases in the Northern Dist. of Mississippi, in which Messrs. Sale & Dowd were employed to assist the Dist. Attorney. Those gentlemen are pressing for a settlement of their account, and an early answer is respectfully requested.

Yours respectfully

M. F. Pleasants,

Chief Clerk
