Nov. 18, 1871.

Gen. Geo. H. Sharpe,

U. S. Marshal,

New York City.


I send herewith a Commission for Judge Pierrepont in the Irving case. Not knowing in which court it is, or the distinct offence named in the indictment, I am unable to describe the case more particularly

If Mr. Bristow made with Judge Pierrepont an arrangement that the Judge should represent the Government, deliver the commission; otherwise return it. See Mr. Bristow and take his direction, if he is in New York; if he is not, do as above directed.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
