New Year's Wish in a Pension Raise Recommendation from 1917

From the Alabama Confederate Pension file of James Madison Justice.  A letter from Geneva Co Alabama, Judge W. H. Morris recommending that the widow's pension be raised.  I had to share because of the New Years wish which he included.  Note that the letter was written on New Years Day of 1917.
