Letter of the Day: April 12

12 April 1956


Honorable Noble J. Gregory

House of Representatives


Dear Mr. Gregory:


Reference is made to your letter of 19 March and our reply of 21 March 1956 in which you requested a change be made in the exhibit label of the Lyon Quintuplets.


In accordance with the letter you enclosed from Mrs. Tilford and the birth certificate, the exhibit label has been changed to indicated the correct date of death of the quintuplet mother. The label now also includes the date of death of the father.


The exhibit, as it is now presented in our Museum, has been rephotographed. Prints of this photograph are enclosed as requested. May I thank you for your interest in this matter.


Sincerely yours,


W.M. Silliphant

Captain, MC, USN
