[Beds & Herts Tuesday Telegraph: October 7th, 1919]
We are authorised to state that the health of Mr Henry Impey, Mayor of Luton, is still such that he will be compelled to observe the strictest rest and quiet for some time to come. To that end he has taken over an old farmhouse in Northamptonshire and there, under country conditions, plenty of fresh air and new interests, he hopes in due time to regain his normal vigour.
That Mr Impey feels the position keenly there is no doubt; it is a very severe wrench to him to put on one side his public work, but it will be readily realised that considerations of health must have first claim.
It will remembered that the Mayor was too unwell to get to the last Council meeting [September 30th]. It is his intention if he is sufficiently recovered to attend the next, and he also desires to be present on November 9th, but whether this will be possible is not at present certain.
