An Act approved 4th March, 1871, passed by the 41st Congress, provides for a Board to be known as “Commissioners of Claims,” whose duty it is to look into and determine the amount due loyal persons for property taken by the Government of the United States, for the use of its armies in the late war “between the States.”—I have made arrangements with an attorney in Washington City for the prosecution of claims of the kind referred to.  Applicants have to prove their loyalty to the satisfaction of the Board.
