May 24, 1871.

Henry W. Moulton, Esq.

Newburyport, Mass.


I have received your letter of the 18th instant.

I will direct the District Attorney of Idaho to suspend the proceedings against you until the first day of October next. By that time it must be practicable for you to gather up the vouchers, and complete your settlement. Promptitude in such settlements should always be observed, and this indulgence is allowed in your case only on account of the peculiar circumstances stated in your letter.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman.

Attorney General.

Case of Ex Marshal Moulton, Idaho.
see Ins. B'k. B. p. 189.
