In answer to yours of the 13th instant, I have the honor to say that the Annual Report of this Department to be made to Congress at the present session, is not yet prepared—the law requiring it to be presented to Congress in January. I send herewith a copy of the Report made in January last.

Very respectfully,

A. T. Akerman,
