Letter of the day, April 23

This refers to a “cast of precocious development of the genitals of a boy aged 4 years” and I can't imagine any 4-year-old boy sitting still for that.

My Dear Dr

Please accept my sincere thanks!

I send with the Bandage &c. a plaster cast taken by Dr. Thos. Miller and Dr R.K. Stone of the genital organs in a child 4 years old.

Yours truly,
FA Ashford
