Dec. 14, 1871.

Hon. Powell Clayton

U.S. Senate.


In answer to yours of this date, I have the honor to say that upon examination, no complaints are found on file in this Department of a political or official nature against Isaac C. Mills, formerly Marshal for the Eastern District of Arkansas, from the date of his appointment in 1868 to his removal in 1870.

I have at your request sent to Senator Trumbull, Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, all papers now on file relating to his removal.

Very respectfully, &c.

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.

no complaints, &c.
