Dec. 12, 1871.

Hon. H. W. Blodgett,

U.S. District Judge,

Chicago, Ill.


I have received your letter of the 8th instant, with the enclosed draft of a bill for supplying the lost records etc., and of a joint resolution for the relief of the Marshal for losses by fire.

At first glance I see no objection whatever to the bill, and none to the joint resolution, except the want of distinctness in one particular, and this I will suggest to Judge Trumbull.

Very respectfully, &c.

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
