March 4, 1871.

Mr. Job B. Overbury,

Granville, Co.

N. C.


Your letter of the 24th ult. has been received. I do not understand whether the cases to which you refer are those between private parties only, or those to which the Government is a party. If the latter, you should apply to the U. S. District Attorney. If the former, I have no right to give official advice upon the subject.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
