The late George Walsh as his youth.   He had been under the physical direction of W.A. Pullum a matter of two years or so, his age at this time being 18. By this time his tubercular condition  had been changed to one which medical opinion certified to be free from its attack.  His general physical appearance - plus the powers of that appearance - confirmed the accuracy of that diagnosis.  Throughout life onward, he never suffered recurrence of the affliction.
