Fort Gibson, Indian Territory,
January 23, 1871.

SIR: In response to request of John A. Foreman, late major of the Third Regiment Indian Home Guards, who has been notified that an application for pension under No. 101123, in his behalf, is pending at the office of the Commissioner of Pensions, we have to request that he may be notified of the condition and requirements of his claim through us.

The papers in said claim do not appear to have reached the Indian files, probably by reason of the civilized name of the claimant, or possibly inasmuch as he formerly served in a Kansas regiment the claim may have been so designated.

Respectfully yours,
Special Agents United States Pension-Office.
Commissioner of Pensions.
