Hon. John S. Witcher,

House of Representatives.


In reply to your letter of the 10th ult., which by some mistake was overlooked until this morning, I have to inform you that the papers filed in this Department in support of the application of General Enochs for a Territorial appointment, were returned to him at his own request on the 3d of May, 1869.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
