Rowland, supposed to be fraudulent, has been received—and I have the honor to inform you that I have transmitted the papers to the District Attorney of the Northern District of New York, in which the offence seems to have been perpetrated, with instructions to institute a prosecution.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
