A note on the application says "Disallow- property". These words were then crossed out and the words "OK. Put him on the roll. Property listed by him belongs to his son" were added. The following handwritten letter, dated 22 Oct 1914 in Bear Creek, is included in the pension papers: "Mr. R.H. Hayes, Dear Sir, I put in an application for a pention. I was talking to B.A. Phillips and Mr. Griffin. Also Sheriff Lane. Mr. Phillips told me that you said you would help me out in it. I wanted to tell you this. I sold my Borough place to one of my suns. He don't stay in this country. It has never him changed. I give it in and pay the tax on it. That is not mine. Mr. B.A. Phillips knows this is true. He run the land and wrote the Deed. The Deed is also registered there in Pittsboro. I think that ought to come off of what I give in. I under-stand that the application was turned down on the account of what I give in. If you can help me out in it you will please do so. I always hope you ever chance I got and will continue to do so. Sheriff Lane and those men I spoke about will help me out if they can. I think I ought to have it. I am not able to work. Please look after it in time. This is from Your Friend, C. R. Beal." This letter is followed by one on the letterhead " Law Offices of R.H. Hayes, Pittsboro, N.C. ". It is dated October 24, 1914. "Hon. W.P. Wood, State Auditor, RALEIGH, N.C. My Dear Sir:-- I am herewith enclosing you a letter from our old friend, C.R. BEAL. I have looked up the tax list since I got your letter and it is entirely unsatisfactory as to what the old man owns. I don't think he owns much. He is old and feeble and what land he has I don't think is paying him much income. I am enclosing a letter I got from him which I think shows the situation. He and his boys, I understand, have come around to be good Democrats, in fact; he has been all his life so far as I know, and I truly hope that you can put his name on the pension roll. What you do, do quickly, and let me know. Yours Very Truly, RHH/F (signed) R.H. Hayes." The words "Put this man on the list" are handwritten across the top of this letter.
