portant to many of the old boys
who wore the Blue to have their
applications made out accurately
and sent in as soon as possible,
and it is quite important that all
be advised of the law at the earli
est possible dab*.

Colorado veterans, but if you
care to do so will be glad to have
you mention that 1 will be pleas- 1
ed to send one of these blanks I
