June 1, 1871.

Hon. S. S. Cox,

New York City.


The case of the Pacific Steamship Company is now under examination in this office, and an opinion will be rendered in a few days—if possible, before I start for Georgia, which will be in a day or two. If not, immediately upon my return.

Very respectfully, &c.

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
