An indictment under section 215 of the Criminal Code of the United States charged the appellant with devising a scheme to defraud and to obtain money under false pretences from certain named persons ( the scheme is fully set out and certain representations alleged) and with causing, for the purpose of executing said scheme, "a certain letter" to a named individual to be delivered by United States mail. The defendant promptly filed a motion to quash the indictment on the ground that it was not sufficiently informative of the offense. Held, without discussion, that the indictment was sufficient. Johnson v. United States, (C. C. A. 9th, 1932) 59 F. (2d) 42.
