Sir,
Enclosed are the vouchers of Josiah Jones, pensioner, which I sent to your office for examination.  I have a certificate of his that he has not received a payment since the 4th March 1842.  He is not certain that he received the six months pension prior to that date.  I shall await your instructions of not making him any payments.  I would remark that in all probability by the time these papers are returned the funds in my hands will be disbursed.  

Respectfully, 
Your Obedient Servant
F. H. Flagg
