[Columbus, Ohio?, 1866. Folio broadside printed on yellow paper, 13" x 18". A variety of bold type sizes and fonts. A couple of closed tears [no loss] which do not impair text. Else Very Good. T.W. Tallmadge of Columbus, Authorized Military Claim Agent, offers his services and explains the terms of the Bounty Bill and its eligible recipients. Tallmadge "will prepare your applications for BOUNTY and PENSION at once, and proposes to visit WASHINGTON CITY to hasten the collection thereof. His experience and facilities for collecting claims are unsurpassed by any other attorney." Tallmadge is recommended by none other than Major General William Tecumseh Sherman, in the following note, printed along the left margin, dated February 22, 1866, from St. Louis: "I have known Theodore W. Tallmadge since his childhood, and his father and family quite as long, but have never had any personal knowledge of his business. Being applied to, I am willing to express my belief that he is worthy of confidence, and capable to discharge the business he has undertaken at Columbus, Ohio, as Military Claim Agent."
