Mr. Lord gives the circumstances tclnt
Inj; to thioiiin of the letter to the District-Attorneys

the letter was not intended to intimidate

promised linninnlty from punishment in
case they tcstllled against accused pci
sons, and that b.ir-f-ihu of this kind were
being carried to nnneces.'ary lengths.
As this course did not cotupoii with tliu
President's older to lei no irullty
man escape, the letter was writ
ten nt his suxxctllon. The At
torney General had a copy and the Presi
dent hud a copy. Mr. Pierrcpont :ucei
talned that It was not made public by the
District Aitorneys.bnt that tien. Jlabcock
"or some one for him, who had access to
the President's papers, obtained a copy
of the letter without any knowledge on
