Parris requests information for the pension of a private in the army. Contains some minor separations, though no text lost; boldly penned and in very good condition.


    More Information:

    Parris was a Massachusetts' senator from 1815-1818; Dearborn had served as the fifth secretary of war from 1801-1809.
