Henry Jenkins was listed as 67 years old on board the Lady Nugent.  On the 27th of February he had severe ankle swelling.  Dr. Sproule attributed this complaint to heart failure, this became worse with ‘anasarca’ or generalised ‘dropsy’ it became worse over the succeeding days.

Henry’s heart slowly responded to the bed rest and also a better diet that he had over the next month, and he was then discharged.
