Mr. Martin L. King, Jr.,
397 Massachusetts Avenue
Boston, Massachusetts

Dear Mr. King:

The following is a summary of your recent examination at the Lahey Clinic. Your weight was 166 1/2 pounds, height 66 1/2 inches, blood-pressure 134/64, and pulse 70 with irregular rhythm. The general examination was satisfactory.

I am enclosing a copy of the laboratory and x-ray studies which you had done, since you may like them for future reference.1 The tests showed no evidence of any anemia nor infection. The x-ray of the heart and lungs was normal.

Very sincerely yours,
[signed]
Rosemary Murphy, M.D.
