Summary Simmons writes Congressman Nicholas about the claim of Benjamin Hendrick for a pension. Simmons feels that this subject is a matter for the Secretary of War, but notes that he does not deem himself knowledgeable enough to determine whether the Secretary of War will place Hendrick on the pension list under the circumstances explained to Simmons by Nicholas. Simmons suggests that a special provision by Congress would allow for Mr. Hendrick to receive his pension and guard against any disappointments.
