Dear Sir: I am in receipt of your letter of February 7 and note that your position is such that you are unable to attend the meetings of the Medical Advisory Board. Under these circumstances I will accept your resignation. Your successor will be appointed upon the suggestion of Dr. Reid White, Medical Aide. I am sure that you would assist in this valuable work were you able to do so. Very truly yours, [illegible] Governor.
