Bounty Declaration of Nancy Kesterson

Shelbyville, Missouri, Jane 21, 1869.

SIR: I wrote you some time ago concerning the claim of Nancy Kesterson, as mother of George M. Kesterson, but have received no answer.

At the request of claimant I now write, again.

The Second Auditor says the claim was allowed December 29, 1868, and sent to you to be forwarded. I am attorney of record for claimant. If any identification of claimant is necessary, please send blanks to her or me.

Respectfully, &c.,
Commissioner of Indian Affairs.
Washington, D. C.
