Feb. 11, 1871.

The President,


The enclosed application of Mr. Haskins for a military cadetship for his son, has been referred to me by your order. I think that this reference must have been made by mistake, as this Department has no connection with such appointments; and therefore I respectfully return the application.

With great respect, I am, Sir,

Your obd't serv't,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
