Washington, D.C. From Sarah Thompson to Mr. Pickles. A request that Pickles, a member of the House of Respresentatives, introduce a bill guaranteeing her a pension for her Civil War Service. (Sarah E. Thompson Papers, Special Collections Library, Duke University)
City, March 17th 1896
Senator Pritchard has offered my pension bill in the senate and he suggested that I get it introduced in the House so that it will be working at both ends at once and as Mr Anderson has gone home and there is no telling when he will come back I would be very grateful to you if you would introduce this bill for me. If you have not the time to draw the bill I will have it drawn.
Mrs. S. E. Thompson
Kindly let me know when it will be convenient for you to see me.
