hereby certify that the above names Andrew J. Ferguson may be relied

(Attached there appears to be a certificate of the Clerk of the
Superior Court of Habersham County, Georgia, to the effect that James
S. Griggs was a Justice of the Peace of said county and that his true
signature is affixed to the above, however the certificate is only
partially shown on the copy as supplied by the National Archives and
insufficiently shown to be able to copy any significant part of it.)
