Applying for My Tennessee Pension

What is the closing and signature from the letter in an application for a Confederate pension from the state of Tennessee?


  1. Yours Respt....

    Cesar Hoyes Col

    Translates into "Yours Respectfully" and the "Col" is the abbreviation for Colonel.

  2. Judy did a good job. I agree.

  3. Yours Respt
    Cesar Hayes Col

    The "Col" is not for Colonel. It most likely stands for "Colored" as that's the series of Confederate pensions from which this item was pulled.
