Respectfully returned to Bvt Lt Col [[underlined]] Jacob F Chur A.A.A.G. with the information that the within named woman is suffering with dropsy & lives about ten (10) miles from this place. According to Mr Benbow's statement she cannot be moved. In my opinion it would be best to have a nurse hired for her at the expense of $5. or


$6.00 per month.
