I suppose from the Attorney General's report that Tesch was joint proprietor with Baar & has squandered away what there was—but the report is not a satisfactory one as to the amount of information it gives, norManuscript image more so as to the result. But there is no need of interference further & the heirs of Baar must now proceed in the usual course if they think it worth their while to save anything out of what may be left. Copy to F.O.
