Hon. Hamilton Fish,

Secretary of State.


Referring to the communication of your predecessor addressed to this office, Feb. 3, 1869, relative to the alleged arrest and homicide, in Arkansas, of one George Parker, said to be a retired officer of her Britannic Majesty's service, I have the honor to transmit herewith a copy of the Report of the Eastern District of Arkansas, on the case. I beg leave to call your attention to the last clause of this Report, and will be glad to hear from you any suggestions in regard to a future prosecution of the investigation.

Very Respectfully,

your obd't serv't,

E. R. Hoar,

Attorney Gen'l.
