Mr. W. W. Dudley,

Harrison, Ark.


I have received your letter of the 15th instant.

I do not think that the villains who have been trying to inveigle you really are disposing of counterfeit money; but are simply trying to entrap you into paying them good money under the promise of sending you counterfeit money.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
