C. H. Prince, Esq.


Augusta, Geo.


I have received a letter dated Twiggs Co., and signed Wm. Gibson, who asks whether protection can be afforded against the Ku Klux.

I enclose an answer to him and wish you to deliver it, if he calls at your office, or if you otherwise know him. He does not give a Post Office address, but says that he will soon be in Augusta, and desires an early reply.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.

Wm. Gibson
