March 12, 1869.

Hon. Edward Jordan,

Solicitor of the Treasury.


I have the honor to state that I have received the following telegram from Henry S. Fitch, U. S. Attorney for Georgia: "I deem it my duty to report that it is currently rumored that the U. S. Marshal for this State has absconded. I have called the Court's attention to the matter. Shall I examine his bonds & papers?" Signed Henry S. Fitch, U. S. Attorney, & dated Atlanta, March 12, 1869.

In as much as your office may be charged with the duty of instituting inquiry into the pecuniary transactions of the Marshal with a view to protect the interests of the government, I deem it proper to communicate to you this information.

Very resp. yours.

E. R. Hoar,

Attorney General.
