Letter of the day, March 15 (special 2nd reprise)

This one got stuck in edit mode and didn't post.

March 15, 1909.

Prof. Henry T. Marshall,
University of Virginia,
Charlottesville, Va.

Dear Doctor:--

Major Percy Ashburn, of our Corps, informed me the other day that you had evolved a laboratory desk which was so arranged that it would seat four men at one window. We are rather crowded here and very much in need of something which will make our windows go further. I would appreciate the favor if you can send me a sketch of your table.

Thanking you in advance for the trouble, I am,
Very respectfully,

Major, Medical Corps, U.S. Army,
Curator, Army Medical Museum
