March 11, 1871.

Mr. W. U. Reichert,

Detroit, Mich.


I have received your letter of the 7th instant.

I am not aware of any law of the United States on the subject of "Marriage Intercession Officers." I am not informed whether there are any provisions in the State laws upon the subject.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
