TERRITORIAL BOARD OF HEALTH,

Honorable E. F. Bishop, President of the Senate, Territory of

Sir: The Legislature Session of 1905, appropriated Fifty Dollars per month for a Government Physician for the District of Koolaupoko, Oahu, but the appropriation has been unavailable from the fact it stipulates such physician must be a resident of the district.

There is none resident nor have I been able to secure one to reside there. Drs. Pratt and Mouritz have visited the district several times and attended to the schools and sick without compensation. At present, there is much sickness there, particularly among children and I am appealed to for aid. 1 sent one doctor over, paid by private funds but am unable to continue, this course. I respectfully request the Senate to take such action as is necessary to make the appropriation available.

I am,

Very respectfully,

L. E. PINKHAM, President, Board of Health.
