Be it known that before me Benjamin Bacon a Justice of the Peace in and for the County aforesaid personally appeared George Bacon and made oath in due form of law that he is the identical George Bacon named in an original certificate in his possession of which I certify the following is a true copy:

"This certifies that George Bacon a Marine, an inhabitant of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, who belonged to the Ship Warren commanded by Dudley Saltonstall, Esquire in the service of the United States of America aged twenty nine years as appears by certificates lodged in the pension office, having been examined by me is found to be disabled in said service by a wound in the right arm; and I do hereby certify that he is entitled to receive twenty-four shillings per month commencing 17th of March 1786 agreeably to the resolution of Congress of the 7th of June 1785 and to an act of the Legislature of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts of the 17th of March 1786, and that said Bacon is not fit for guard or garrison duty. Given under my hand at Boston this 28th day of July in the year of our Lord 1786 and in the eleventh year of the Independence of the United States of America.
