To Mrs. Atcherley:

Having received work by mail of last week to this effect: That we, the leper inmates of Kalaupapa did meet and appoint a committee to extend by wireless our hearty endorsement to the Governor for the reappointment of L. E. Pinkham, Esq. as president of the Board of Health, on the 18th day of April, 1908,

Be it further announced, That Mr. Pinkham’s removal from that office receives our hearty approval.
