November 8, 1870.

Hon. Hamilton Fish,

Secretary of State.


I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your communication of the 29th ult., enclosing a letter from the Consul of the United States at Matamoras, in which fears are expressed that the Neutrality Laws of the United States will be violated at and near Brownsville, Texas, by partisans, in Mexican controversies.—I enclose to you a copy of a letter of instructions to the marshal of the Eastern District of Texas, which shows the action this Department has taken upon the subject.

I am sir, with great respect,

Your ob't serv't

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
