Mr Welty,
The record of service in this case shows that claimant served from July 21st 1812 to August 4th 1812. Comrades testify that he served in the same company three months commencing at the same date July 21st, 1812. This latter evidence of service cannot be accepted as it contradicts the record and as no other service is alleged claim must be rejected.
