engaged in the legislation upon, and in the investigation and adjustment of, claims against the United States for military service, I am convinced that much of the matter included in my collections, especially the correspondence of officers, and the list of their deaths, will serve as an important guide to individuals in asserting their claims, and as a protection of the interests of the government in adjusting them.

They will, also, be found useful in answering at once, and without trouble, the thousands of letters to members of Congress from their constituents, asking information relating to military service, pensions, and the Pension and Bounty Land Laws of the Revolution.

In preparing this work, I have availed myself of the free use of "Irving's Life of Washington," "Lossing's Field Book of the Revolution," and " McSherry's History of Maryland," which, I am free to acknowledge, are the best and most accurate works extant, on their respective subjects, and should be owned by every reader in the land.
