The distance is about 25 miles from the station to the farm. Dr. John Maccredie states - Garry came to him yesterday afternoon and upon being asked if he wished to be taken into hospital he said no, that he had come down to get some shoes; the prisoner has complaint upon him of long standing but was not in such a situation that a delay of a few days would materially effect him.
