August 11, 1871.

T. H. Talbot, Esq.

Assistant Attorney General,

Washington, D. C.


After examination of the case of Amanda Worthington, adm'x of Samuel Worthington, deceased, vs. The United States, I am not satisfied that the appeal can be maintained, or that other reasons exist for delaying the execution of the judgment of the Court of Claims.

I desire, therefore, that you will prepare for my signature the proper papers withdrawing the appeal. If, as I have been informed, there are some small counter-claims of the United States which should be credited upon the judgment, you will provide for them in the papers which you draw.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
