Justice Frank J. and Virginia Williams
This handwritten letter, date March 30, 1878, is written from Carl Schurz to C.C. Adams wherein Schurz informs Adams that Mr. Leonard Sewell has offered the "charges communicated to you" and "desires to introduce testimony". C. C. Adams was a Special Agent of the Treasury Department who examined charges against a Special Agent, Mr. Carter, in relation to timber theives in Mississippi and Louisiana. Carter was later vindicated. Presumably the letter is referring to that case. The letter is written on Department of the Interior letterhead.
