‘ "During the last nine or twelve months, John David Schmidt, letter packer, in the employ of Turn and Taxis, has, according to his own confession, stolen letters containing gold. Said letters were intended partly for the postal jurisdiction of Frankfort and partly for Bavaria, Wurtemberg, Baden, and Switzerland. It is important to ascertain the number and the contents of said letters, the names of the addressed and senders.
