November 19, 1870.

Mr. L. E. Carter,

Hartsville, Tenn.


I have received the letter of your Committee, of the 9th instant.

I very much regret the outrages from which you have suffered. If they were in violation of any law of the United States, the U. S. District Attorney for your District is bound to prosecute the offenders—and I have no doubt he will, if you give him the proper information.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
