Dr. Dickson to D. K. McDonell, Esq

Sir: I have the honor to report for the information of the honorable the minister of justice that the convict Robert B. Lynch is apparently in very good health. He has been a patient in hospital only once since he entered the prison; he was admitted on the 28th of December, 1867, complaining of a very slight attack of dysentery, which yielded speedily to treatment and only detained him in hospital two days. He has since the above date come to the surgery on two occasions, complaining of some slight indisposition which merely required a few doses of physic. He has not, however, made any complaint of being unwell for some months past.

I have, &c.,

JOHN R. DICKSON, M. D., F. R. C. F. E., Surgeon Provincial Penitentiary.

D. K. McDonell, Esq. Warden P. P.
