Text

"Claimant swears that he was a union man but that he sympathized with the people of the South. One of his witnesses says that he also was a union man at the leastful- despaired of the cause and went with his friends. His second witness says that claimant had not any reputation for loyalty or disloyalty, but they both say that he is loyal, of course. Claimant did nothing for the union and suffered nothing. He was not threatened nor molested, but lived peaceably and quietly and on friendly terms with his neighbors, and we fail to see anything to distinguish him from them. We therefore reject the claim."
