December 10, 1870.

Hon. H. H. Emmons,

Memphis, Tenn.


I have received yours of the 5th instant.

The unusual pressure of business upon this Department, growing out of the session of Congress, and of the Supreme Court, makes it apparently impossible either for the Solicitor General or myself to visit Memphis now. I will, however, take the matter into consideration, and if the course of business should permit such a visit, one of us would undertake it.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
