July 3, 1869.

Hon. Geo. S. Boutwell,

Secretary of the Treasury.


I have considered the Internal revenue case of C. Borden of the State of New York. He proposes to pay, as a compromise, a specific penalty of $200—to consent to a forfeiture of the stills and distilling apparatus seized, and to pay all costs.

I recommend that his proposal be accepted.

Very Respectfully,

W. A. Field,

Acting Attorney General
