House of Representatives, United States of America. 63 pages relating to the investigation of Ashley making F. M. Case surveyor general of the Colorado Territory. On September 11, 1862, a newspaper published five letters that had been written by Ashley in February, 1861, to F. M. Case. In the letters Ashley solicited a bribe for securing the appointment of Case as Surveyor-General of Colorado. The price for securing the position was to be the appointment of Ashley's brother as Case's chief clerk at a salary of two thousand dollars a year, and a share in all land speculations on town sites.
