Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Office of Pension Agent, 29 Pemberton Square
Boston, January 1, 1894
To the Honorable the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled:
I have the honor to submit my sixth annual report for the year ending December 31, 1893.
The business of this office, since the change of administration, is much more perplexing than it has been in previous years. One reason is from the fact that many claims which had been prosecuted, claimants examined, and the testimony necessary to establish the claim under the Act of June 27, 1890, had been forwarded to the Department and placed upon the completed files ready for the certificates to be issued, the rulings of the new Commissioner, in which a different construction was placed upon the Act of June 27, 1890, made it necessary for these claimants to again furnish the testimony with some additions to comply with the new ruling of the Commissioner.
Much more content including a detailed statement of the business of the office during the year. Signed in print by J.B. PARSONS, State Pension Agent. Click on the enlargements to see the complete content of the document.
Light wear. There is a small chip out of the paper at the upper corner of the last page which does not affect any of the content. Interesting Massachusetts pension document concerning Civil War soldiers and their families.
