September 21, 1869.

George Neally, Esq.

37 Crosby street,

New York.


I am directed to say, in reply to your inquiry of the 18th inst. that this office has no information in regard to one John S. Cochran.

It is suggested that the place where he is believed to have been confined is the proper place to inquire the reasons of his confinement.

Very respectfully,

M. F. Pleasants,

Chief Clerk.
