Nov. 9, 1871.

D. J. Baldwin, Esq.

U. S. Attorney,

Galveston, Texas.


I have received your letter of the 30th ult. in relation to the prosecution against Jesse [Stancel?].

From your statement it appears to be a case that ought to be prosecuted with vigor, and you will take that course in the matter.

Very respectfully

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.

Jesse [Stancel?]'s case (go on with suit)
