May 24, 1871.

F. H. Mays, Esq.

Fincastle, Va.


I am directed by the Attorney General to acknowledge the receipt of your letter without date, and to say that this Department issues no instructions to U. S. Commissioners. I send you copies of Instructions to Dist. Attorneys and Marshals, from which you may possibly derive some information.

Very respectfully,

A. J. Falls,

Chief Clerk.
