Dec. 6, 1871.

Mr. Jacob D. Enos,

No. 1416 I street,

Washington, D. C.


Your letter of yesterday arrived so late that I have not time to say more by way of reply than that I most heartily wish you success in your objects. I do not believe that the violent people of the South will venture to molest you now for exercising the right of a citizen. If they do, it shall be no fault of mine if they are not brought to justice.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
