Mr. Gresham to Messrs. Goodrich, Beady & Goodrich.

Gentlemen: Your letter of the 26th ultimo, and the affidavit of Mr. A. F. Stubbs, have been examined in connection with the papers already on file here relative to the schooner Henry Crosby, and in reply I have to say that I see no reason to change the opinion expressed in the Department’s letter to you under date of April 10 last.

I am, etc.,

W. Q. Gresham
