We hereby certify that we have this day, in consultation, seen MISS WILLARD, and have paid the most careful attention to her case.
We consider that she is free of any actual organic disease, at this moment, and that she bids fair to make a complete recovery; but from excessive overwork she has brought her nervous powers to a condition of exhaustion that is critical, and we are of opinion that she must have one entire year of absolute rest from all public labours.
