Dec. 20, 1871.

Hon. M. H. Carpenter,

U.S. Senate.


I am not aware of any intention to move to advance the case of the barque "Mary Merritt."

If it should become proper to make such a motion while I am in office, I will see that you have notice.

Very respectfully, &c.

A. T. Akerman,

Attorney General.

"Mary Merritt" case
