Lucien Eaton, Esq.

U. S. Commissioner

St. Louis, Mo.


The letter of John S. Stott, which you transmitted to this office with your endorsement, dated the 9th inst. has been received and considered. I have sent a copy of it to the U. S. Marshal for the Northern Dist. of New York, with an intimation that Mr. Stott is not a fit person to remain in the public service.

Very respectfully, &c.

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
