I Martin D. Welsh, father of Harold Mc Clellan Welsh, account of having bad health and continuing trying to operate my business, I do request a Deferement for him, due to the following reasons, with his eleven years of experience in the Business, his service is very much needed under my physical conditions at this time.
In the year 1949 we did a business of $35328.18, in addition to operating a “Fourth Class Post Office,” in the sixteenth bracket, where he serves as clerk.
When Office is in third class he serves, and is employed as No. 1, Clerk. Due to the Christmas and Holiday Quarter coming up we will have to handle as much or more mail in the month of December, as we usually handle in any one Quarter consisting of Ninety days or normal Quarter. Following this brings up our inventories and the closing out of the years business. Every two weeks we are required to handle approximately $7500.00, which is required to operate our business and handle part of the pay rolls of this section, this money has to be handled very rapidly and accurately, to accomodate our patroons.
Harold M. Welsh, has approximately eleven years experience at this work this includes broken service while in school. He worked all the spare time available while attending High School and College. He is a High School Graduate, and has A Civil Service Rating for the state of West Virginia, Rated as No 2 Typist and No 3 Clerk.
He has completed one year at Shepherd College in 1948, in 1949 he had to give up his college career for the time being to help me with our business due to the facts that my physical conditions did/not respond to treatment as expected.
Our consists of operating a General Business, Service Station, Cafateria Service, and I serve as Postmaster And Notary Public. We operate our business twelve hours A day six days A week. I refer you to Dr. Henry Aldis, Shepherdstown, Jefferson Co; W. Va. who has treated me beginning March 14th;1947, when I had my first attack of Coronary Thrombosus and second attack on January 3 rd; 1950. He has been my attending physian to date.
Yours Very Respectfully,
