St. Louis, Mo. Washington, March 7, 1865.
Please state briefly by telegraph what you concluded about the assessments in St. Louis county. Early in the war one Samuel B. Churchill was sent from St. Louis to Louisville, where I have quite satisfactory evidence that he has not misbehaved. Still, I am told his property at St. Louis is subjected to this assessment, which I think it ought not to be. Still, I wish to know what you think.
