In compliance with Circular No. 10 Bureau of Refugees Freedmen & A.L. Richmond Va dated March 12th 1866. I have the honor to report that no criminal cases (in which a colored person was a party) have been tried by the Civil Courts of my Sub District during the month of July 1866.

Justice would not in all cases be awarded Freedmen if no Officer of the Bureau was here to look after their interest
