In this case the District Court denied the letter motions of the prisoner, Harold D. Hagins, for modification or reduction of a two months sentence for escape from the Federal Correctional Institution, Seagoville, Texas.

The motions, on their face, appealed only to the sound discretion of the sentencing court. The appropriate exercise of that discretion will not be disturbed on appeal.
