Edson Saxberry House bill No. 6193

December 17th, 2008 by Barbara

EXECUTIVE MANSION, August 10, 1888

To the House of Representatives:

I return without approval House bill No. 6193, entitled “An act for the relief of Edson Saxberry.”

The beneficiary named in this bill filed a declaration for a pension in 1879, alleging that in 1863 he bruised his leg, which became very sore, and when it began to heal his eyes became sore.

The evidence taken upon a careful examination of this application seems to establish, by the admission of the applicant and by other evidence, the correctness of the position taken by the Pension Bureau in rejecting the claim, that whatever disability was incurred existed before enlistment and was in no manner attributable to military service.
