Hon. Geo. S. Boutwell,

Secretary of the Treasury.


I have received your letter of the 21st instant, enclosing copies of communications from the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, and from the Supervisor, Mr. Emery, and an Assistant Assessor, Mr. Bryant, in Tennessee, making charges against Mr. Smith, the District Attorney for the Middle District of Tennessee.

These charges will receive due consideration. The supervisor, Mr. Emery, has in person made similar complaints to me, and he has been informed that there shall be a speedy investigation.

Very respectfully, &c.
