Letter from War Department in Denial of Claim, November 20, 1832

  War Department
     Pension Office
        Nov. 20th 1832
     The papers in support of your claim to a pen-
sion are herewith returned. Your service as a team-
ster and waiter to a wagon-master dows not necessarily
imply that you were a soldier bound to military duty
and detailed for such employment, without which
your case is not embraced by the act of 7 June 1832.
It will be necessary to show that you were under the usual
enlistment as a soldier.
  I am Respectfully
    Yr. Obt. Servt,
       J. L. Edwards

Mr. Jehu Grant
