    Default a claim upon me

    Hola. ¿Qué significa "a claim upon me" en la frase siguiente?: I have never shirked accompanying any dear brother who had a claim upon me, either of relationship or friendship, to the only home where men can do no more harm to anybody.
    Gracias por vuestra ayuda.

    Yo creo que más que reclamación, se trata de un derecho.

    Hola! En el ámbito legal implica "tener derecho a". Sin embargo, en este caso, que supongo es parte de un poema o una narración, se trata de la siguiente acepción de 'claim'
    Claim (3) to say that (something) belongs to you or that you deserve (something).
    (Fuente: Merriam Webster)

    Saludos!

    Hola a todos,

    No creo que sea "Reclamo sobre mi"

    Coincido con que no se trata de un reclamo o una reclamación. ¿Qué opinan de "un hermano querido para con quien yo tenga una obligación, ya sea por una relación o por una amistad..."? "claim" hace referencia a una obligación o a un deber al que se incurre por tener una amistad o una relación con una persona.

    I read this with a different interpretation...

    "...any dear brother who had a claim upon me, either of relationship or friendship,..."

    I think "brother" means a brother in the sense of "all men are brothers" either through relationship (blood) or through friendship.

    and that it says "I have never refused (shirked) to accompany any man who could say he is (claim to be) my brother (blood or friend)" to the only home....
