Dec. 14, 1871.

Joseph R. Bennet, Esq.

U. S. Marshal,

Detroit, Mich.


I have addressed the District Attorney of your District on the subject of trespasses upon the Light House grounds near Monroe Harbor, and enclose to you a copy of the communication.

If he advises that the case is one justifying summary proceedings under the law against the trespasses, you will forthwith proceed in a summary way for the protection of the government property.

Very resp'lly,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
