He incloses Gen. [Thomas] Proctor's accounts, and papers relating to them; his opinion is that the accounts have been settled by the state and cannot be opened again for discussion; no relief can be given except perhaps under the most favorable construction of the act of the legislature authorizing the General to bring an action; he desires Bryan's opinion.
