Approved for rejection: soldier was discharged on S. C. D. for

Epilepsy which existed prior to enlistment. The claimant

admits or states before Sp Ex that he was subject to

attacks of what she calls "Cramp Colic" before he en-

tered the service. She also states that he was taken

with running off at the bowels. & vomiting which was

followed by an epileptic fit and that after he came

out of that he broke out in a cold sweat that lasted

until he died not to exceed 48 hours after he was

first taken. She claims that he had Chr Diarrhour

in service but there is no proof to [show marked out] corraborate

her statement and even if there were it would

be difficult to discrimminate between it and

the attacks of "Cramp colic" to which he was subject

prior to enlistment When careful consideration

I donít see how further examination would help the

case for in event of death from either Epilepsy

or what appears to have been cramp colic she would

be unable to establish freedom from same

Law Office of CHARLES & WILLIAM B. KING,

Washington, D. C., June 18, 1893.

Hon. Commissioner of Pensions,

Sir: In the above-entitled claim, the last official call for evidence was received by us on the 6 day of June, 1891, and on the 9 day of June, 1891, we called upon the claimant for the necessary evidence or for information to enable us to procure it, and have repeated this call or reminded him of it or written to witnesses 12 different times since that date, the last time being this day. The evidence will be furnished without any unnecessary delay on our part, as it is our rule to act upon all our cases at least once in every three months.

It is thus manifest that the delay in meeting official requirements in this case is not attributable to any neglect on our part, but is due to the failure of the claimant to respond to our calls.

This slip is filed to show that the claim is not neglected by us or abandoned and is not intended as a request for its condition unless evidence has been filed or the claimant heard from since the last official letter to us, in which event please furnish us with the present condition of the claim and the last known address of the claimant.

                            Please retain this slip in the case.
