Nov. 13, 1871.

Gen'l W. E. Doster,

Easton, Penn.


Your letter of the 10th inst. is received, and the references are certainly very respectable. The President, however, has determined upon another appointment, of which you have doubtless been advised by the newspapers.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
