The cause of action being for acts done by Mr. Delano as an officer of the Government, to wit Commissioner of Internal Revenue, and in the line of his duty, you will appear for his defence.

You can probably learn from Walter H. Smith, Esq. Ass't Attorney General on duty at the Department of the Interior, all facts necessary for the defence.

Very respectfully,

Attorney General.
