MADAM: We are referred to you by Rev. J. B. Jones, United States agent, for information respecting Jackson Walker, minor child of Nicholas Walker, late a private in Company I, Second Regiment Indian Home Guards. A pension was allowed to said minor child, and paid to Susannah Pickeotee, his guardian, to September 4, 1869. It is now reported that the child is dead. Can you inform me as to the truth of the report.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
United States Pension-Agent.
Cincinnati, Arkansas.
