Dec. 18, 1871.

Hon. M. H. Carpenter,

U.S. Senate.

Dear Sir:

Are the legal proceedings in reference to the canal at Duluth ended? I ask this because Mr. Davis, the District Attorney, has sent in his bill for compensation; and it is important that I should know whether his services are completed.

Very truly yours,

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.
