I have for several years past have been advised to make an application for a pension, but I thought I never would do it so long as I could support with out because I thought and knew that I had rendered much service to my country in the achievement of its liberty, I therefore determined never to be a public charge to my country so long as I could possibly avoid it by what little labor give me for the reguard he had for me as a relation and what little work I was able to do but he is now dead and from age and infirmity I am unable any longer to support myself. I have no family but myself nor has not had for about 8 years past. My occupation has been that of a farmer but am now from age and infirmity unable to persue it. That I have no other property or securities other than what is contained in the schedule here to annexed and by me subscribed. SCHEDULE: One old mare and colt worth $35.00 Three head of cattle at $6 each $18.00 (S) William Brown The following changes has been made in my property since the year 1818. That that time I had one horse which I swaped for the mare I now own with one Charles PACK, about three years since, and since the mare has had the colt above named. Also in the year 1818 I had about the same number of cattle I have now, that is three, but they had some young ones, which are the same above stated, and I killed the old ones for beef, I think three, to support myself.
