October 11, 1918. Dr. B.A. Middleton, Emmerton, Va. Dear Dr. Middleton: - I have your letter of September 17th suggesting Dr. A.C. Fisher of Emmerton for appointment as successor to Dr. C. T. Paine on the Medical Advisory Board. Dr. Fisher will be appointed as suggested. Absence from the city, making a tour of the South-west in the interest of increased coal production, the sale of liberty bonds, and an inspection of the Military companies has, unavoidably delayed my reply, which I regret. Yours very truly, [illegible] Governor.
