My Dear Sir

Some time in May I sent to the Confederate pension Board what we thought to be sufficient to allow me a small pension. I have never heard from the Board not even acknowledging the receipt of the affidavits I am now in my 85 year and in needy circumstances and by course of nature I will not be here long as I am totally disabled

To do anything with no one but a lone daughter who is very weakley herself to supply my wants. So I ask That you take up my case and if I am intitled to anything et me have it at any rate I think I am intitled to have a pension.

Respectfully
