Dec. 12, 1871.

C. F. Linkfield, Esq.

Camden, N. Y.


Your letter of the 2d inst. to the Solicitor General has been received.

I do not think that the papers which you transmit furnish a sufficient reason for the interference of this Department with the regular course of the law.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
