[Letter from Dept of Public Health]
DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND VITAL STATISTICS

Austin, Texas, 4/12/09.
Dear Doctor:
You no doubt have learned of the action of the Legislature in passing the Board of Health bill. The bill in the main is a good one and gives the health Department a working basis and enlarged power.
It occurred to me that your County Medical Society would have another meeting before the State Meeting and it would be proper at the County Meeting to indorse the action of the Legislature and pledge the Society to aid the Board of Health in every possible way.
The board of Health Bill as you know was passed in response, in most part, to the demands and efforts of organized medicine in Texas and for this reason would be pleased if your Society would take this matter up and pass such resolutions as they deem best, also they might instruct their delegate to the State convention to favor a like action in the House of Delegates.
Thanking you in advance for any interest taken in this matter, I am
Yours very truly, M. Brumby [Page 269]
