“He goes out to exercise with the others, plays ball with them etc”

From the MO to the Governor
Concerning the petition of Laurence Ginnell.

W T Cosgrave is in fair health. He is naturally of poor physique and somewhat [illegible – [possibly anaemic?].

I have found in him no actual organic signs of disease.

He goes out to exercise with the others, plays ball with them etc.

He had a moderate attack of influenza on Aug. 25th from which he soon recovered.
