Partly Printed Document Signed (twice): "W G Harding", 1p, 8x4. Marion, Ohio, 1901 January 26. In full: "Proof of Publication. W.G. Harding, of lawful age, being sworn, says that a printed notice, a copy of which is hereunto attached, was published for three consecutive weeks in The Marion Star, a newspaper published and in general circulation in said Marion County, immediately previous to the 17th day of November A.D., 1899, and that at the time he was pub of said paper."
