You state that you had with the advice of your Executive Council directed the amount of these alleged defalcations vizt $308 to be written off the public Accounts, without pronouncing any opinion as to Mr. Nagle's guilt or innocence.
I see no reason for doubting the propriety of the course which you have adopted in this matter.
I have the honor to be
Your most obedient
humble servant
