Very respectfully,

Mr. F.D. Love, J. L. Davenport,

Georgetown, Texas Acting Commissioner.

Note: I give the following, in order to show that any who are desirous of obtaining a copy of the papers and proof on file may know that they are on file in the City of Washington, and can be obtained by advising with the head of that Department, who will suggest the means of securing one. It may be that I will secure one my self, in which event, I will place it with these papers. In years to come, it will be an honor to be a descendant or one of the Revolutionary Heroes, and it is for that reason that I take the pains to preserve these references. Many are losing sight of their ancestors, and it will be but a short time until some will find it difficult to trace their genealogy back to one of these heroes.-F.D. Love
