      I enclose such further proof as could be obtained in behalf of Elizabeth HUber. I trust the evidence of her marriage will be entirely satisfactoy.
      She has not been able to provide any additional evidence as to the first town [term?] of her husbands service.
      In your letter of July 13, you say he is credited with 1 mo. & 12 days service as a Captain in '79 this with the 5 mos. proved in '77 will secure a pension at all events, for over 6 mos. She ______ that her husband was called out some days before the Battle of the 6th of Augt.

The old lady seems confident it was much more than one year. Perhaps there may be certificates of service in your Dept. that will show the account.

      Hon. A. Loomis

      Dear Sir

      I enclose to you the deposition of Judge Rosencrantz proving the marriage of Henry Huber to his present widow in 1774.
      The 2 sons live in LeRay Jefferson county & the papers heretofore made in this case have been provided by Mr. Hungerford of Watertown. From the last letter to him from court of pensions all that was required was proof of the time of marriage. If it would be more satisfactory to Mr. Edwards to hear an injunction of this half sheet or leaf of a book I will procure and forward it, and with you would enquire & write me.
      Peter Huber, a son, was here recently & searched in every place where it was imagined there was any probablity of a record being found but none could be found & the judge in looking over papers he supposed useless lying promiscously in a draw came across this paper in his fathers hand writing, its appearance is conclusive evidence of its genuineness.
      I wish you would be so kind as to bestow some attention to the case of Anna Nash, whom declaration was made before you. I do think the fact of her marriage is made out clearly so as to entitle her to a pension & feel confident that you would come to the same conclusion on an examination of the evidence. What is sufficient in a court of law or equity to recover any property the right to which was dependant on proof of that fact and if so I do think it conclusive also to establish the right to the pension where all else the law requires is complied with

      Page 42:
      I really wish you could devote some little time to this , Mr. Edwards, as I have reason to know, is an excellent officer, but in all cases to exact a record, or the evidence of a witness present at the marriage, is impracticable, the former may never have been kept, or if kept [be?] lost or destroyed. Item latter may all be dead & this appears is the case of of Mr. Nash, & then we [have?] other proof which goes to establish the fact of [_________?] of the war as Judge Frank ?_ucars & her half brother & her full brother has stated her age & that she was married at 22 years of age.
      You know the situation of Mrs. Nash, that if anything can be done for her, it would be most welcome & do much good.
      All well as usual, nothing new,
      With great respect,
      Your obdt. srvnt.
      George H. Feeter

      In the case of Mrs. Huber it is wished that Mr. Edwards should communicate direct with me as more convenient.
