Newton W. Gilbert, Message of the Governor-General to the Third Philippine Legislature, October 16, 1912

In the absence of His Excellency the Governor-General, it becomes my duty to send to you a message at the opening of the Third Philippine Legislature. Mr. Forbes is still detained at home by reason of impaired health occasioned by his arduous and unselfish service to the people and Government of these Islands. I voice with you the earnest hope that his health may be fully restored and that he may soon be able to resume the duties of the office which he has so ably filled for several years.
