S. M. Knight Revolutionary War Claim

Scope and Contents

One page letter from the Washington D.C. pension office writing to an unknown applicant to inform them that their application is in the process of being examined. The letter explains that due to the large number of pension applications, that a delay in response and review of the application is a result. The letter appears to be a copy that was utilized by the Pension Office as there are clear marks that it was reprinted somehow but the date and signature of the letter are clearly handwritten. Perhaps this was a sort of form letter sent to pension applicants as they dealt with the large amount of cases within their office.
