John A. Minnis, Esq.

U. S. Attorney,

Montgomery, Ala


I acknowledge the receipt of your letter to the President of the 12th instant, on the subject of the Ku Klux outrages, &c. which the President has referred to me. As the communication does not seem to require any specific action, no further answer is necessary.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney Gen'l.
