July 29, 1869.

Hon. C. Delano,

Com. of Internal Revenue.


I desire to submit to your inspection a letter this day received from the U. S. Marshal of the Western District of Missouri, to whom I had transmitted a statement of the complaints which came from your Bureau. I have no doubt that Mr. Smith means to make himself a faithful and efficient officer. Will you be so kind as to return his letter to this office when you have read it?

Very respectfully,

E. R. Hoar,

Attorney General.

Refutation of Complaints ag't U. S. Marshal W. Missouri.
