Summary

Description
English: Circular from Attorney General Francis Biddle to all U.S. attorneys concerning involuntary servitude, slavery and peonage. It instructed the attorneys to build prosecutions around the issues of involuntary servitude and slavery rather than the issue of peonage, which required the existence of the element of debt. Many prosecutions had been declined because no element of debt was found.
