McCullough - Glenn


TAG-11/29/1899    Dear Sir:  I enclose the affidavit and reinstatement referred to in our Conversation a few weeks ago:
The affidavit of John Beard is also on file but as it contains the same allegations as that of James Edams, I have not copied it. 
   The date of the Edam's affidavit is evidently a mistake - should be 1753 instead of 1754 all of the reszt of the papers bear that date.  The bond of Beard and Edams as admr to Beard's affidavit are both dated Oct 27 1753 while the Inventory filed Nov 12, 1753 and dated Oct 29 1753.
