The following letter was a bit puzzling because I couldn’t make out the location of land desired.

Franklin N C Dembr 13th 1850

Dear Sir

Inclosed I Send you my declaration
for Land bounty & discharge which I wish
you would have the case attended to I wish the
to locate my land in the [illegible]

Yours &c
Mansfield Anderson

To the commission of Pensions
