Description A letter on Treasury Department stationary from Assistant Director Leon Fraser to John Hoover Price, dated December 30, 1921.

Letter reads:
Dear Sir
The War Risk Insurance Act provides that no payments of compensation may be made where the disability of service origin is less than 10 per cent or where the disability has no connection with military or naval service, or where it was not incurred in the line of duty.
Your claim, therefore, has been disallowed for the following reason:
[Disability less than 10% typed into the space]
This fact, however, does not preclude you from submitting additional evidence to prove that the disability from which you are now suffering is greater than 10 per cent, and was incurred in the active military of naval service in line of duty.
All future correspondence on this claim should bear your full name, rank, and organization, as well as our file number
By authority of the Director:

Bears the signature of Leon Fraser.

On the back of the page written in in pen is a name that is rather illegible.

From the service of Musician, later 2nd Lieutenant John Hoover Price, 25th Cavalry Band, then Band, Headquarters 83rd Field Artillery, then 19th Training Battery, Field Artillery Command Officers' Training School, Camp Zachary Taylor, Kentucky.
