Letter of the Day: August 20

Central Branch, National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers.

P.O. Address, National Military Home., Ohio, Aug 20th, 1883


Friend Billings

D. Sir


As our fraternal friend Dr. Otis has left us and I am not acquainted with the med. Officers in charge of the Med. Museum and as pathological specimens of interest are not infrequent here I expected to see you at the Cleveland Meeting and if the specimens are wanted at the Med. Museum I would try to get them to you.


Are they out of Sulphuric Acid in Egypt or why do they let so many die of cholera?


Yours respect.

H.A. Stephens


Dr. J.S. Billings

Surg. Gen. Office
