Hon. W. W. Boyce,
Washington, D. C.
In the case of Isaac Owens, convicted by military commission in South Carolina, of manslaughter, and sentenced to five years imprisonment at hard labor in Fort Macon, in which you have filed the petition of numerous citizens for a pardon, I have to say that under this date the Secretary of War has been requested to call upon the General commanding the District in which the proceedings were had, for a Report in the premises, on receipt of which, further action will be had in this office.
your obedient servant,
John M. Binckley,
Assistant Attorney Gen'l
