Nov. 20, 1871.

Hon C. B. Cole, James Jackson, and others,

Macon, Georgia.


I have received your memorial on the subject of the location of the new District or Circuit Court for the middle District of Georgia, should one be created.

I will bear in mind your suggestions, and will see that they are presented to Members of Congress who would take an interest in the matter.

I will say, however, that I regard the establishment of a new District as at present very doubtful.

Very respectfully,

Amos T. Akerman,

Attorney General.

New Judicial Dist. in Geo.
