April 7, 1870.

Hon. J. F. Hartley,

Acting Secretary of the Treasury.


I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 5th instant, relating to the case of Tirrell et al., vs. The Comptroler of the Currency, and the receiver of the First National Bank of New Orleans.

That case is No. 299 on the docket of the Supreme Court for the present term. The state of that docket is such that I do not think the case can be advanced and assigned for hearing during the present session of the Court. But if the Court have an adjourned session, I will endeavor then to have it brought forward and heard.

Very respectfully,

E. R. Hoar,

Attorney General.

Sup. Court case No.299.
