H. English, a notary public at
ley Junction, Iowa:
I, James H. Kennedy, now a res
ident of tbe town of Sinalva in the
state of Sinola, Mexico, do solemnly
swear that I am an American by
birtb;that I served three Tears in
tbe Seventh Iowa dnring the late
civil war: mat i nave always been a
republican: that I have resided in
Mexico for 25 years; that I speak the
Spanish language as well or better
that I now do the Engliah. I have
traveled through 24 of the 27 states
in Mexico in an olbcial capacity and
as interpreter lor numerous syndi
ca'es. I have access to almost all
tbe archives of that country. I am
better acquainted with the customs
and usages of that country than I am
of my mother country. I left Mex
ico on tbe 2d dav of March. 196,
coming to this country to visit my
irienas, relatives and old comradts.
During the last month in Iowa I
have heard more absurd and utterly
lalse statements made in regard to
al'lthn MothnHict KniiAntml rhnrch for
50 years or more, and have never
