Page 74

On this 5th day of November, 1887, at Seventy Six, County of Clinton, State of Kentucky, before me, W. H. Egleton a Special Examiner of the Pension Office, personally appeared Sarah Brown,~ the applicant in the aforesaid pension claim, who says:

Q: If it should become necessary to further examine your claim, by taking the testimony of witnesses elsewhere, do you desire to be present in person or be represented by an attorney, or both, at such further examination? If so, you will be notified as to the place and time when it is to be made.

A: No Sir.

Q: Should you change your mind and desire to be present, or be represented by an attorney during any further examination of your case, will you at once address a letter to the “Commissioner of Pensions, Washington, D. C.,” giving the name and the number of your claim, informing him that you have so changed your mind, and desire to be notified when your claim is to be further examined?

A: Yes Sir.

State the name of person or persons and their post-office addresses, instrumental in the prosecution of your claim for pension.

A: George E. Lemon, Washington D. C. and E. S. Higginbottom, Euclid, Clinton Co. Ky. and J. A. Story, Ablany, Clinton Co. Ky have been local attorneys.

Q: State what contract or contracts you have made with such person or persons for their services in prosecuting your claim for pension, and whether such contract or contracts were written or verbal.

A: J. C. Warriner of Albany, Clinton Co. Ky. was the man that first helped me and I was to give him 1/3 or 1/2 of my pension when I got it. Then Higginbottom took it and I was to give him about the same. This was a few years ago, just how long I don’t know, I made no other arrangement with anybody else.

Q: State the amount of fees paid by you or at your instance, to whom paid, and all the circumstances connected with the transaction.

A: Nothing whatsoever to anybody.

Q: Please give me the names of all witnesses that you desire examined elsewhere, with their post-office addresses, and also state what you expect to prove by each witness.

A: None.

Q: Have you any complaint to make as to the conduct, manner, or fairness of the examination of your claim? If so, please state specifically what it is.

A: No Sir.

Q: Do you wish to introduce any more testimony before me?

A: No.
