Sept. 8, 1871.

Mr. William E. Walker,

Trenton, N. J.


I have received your letter of the 2d instant.

It has been made the subject of a communication to the U. S. Marshal for New Jersey, and if any wrong has been done the colored citizens, it will not be repeated, if I have power to prevent it.

Very respectfully, &c

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.

New-Jersey colored citizens.
