Curatorial Records: Numbered Correspondence 1642
Office of R.H. Cooper,
Palatka, Florida, Aug 5, 1896
The Curator Army Medical Museum
The City Council of the City of Palatka desires to as-certain whether you subject a sample of water to an analytical or microscopic examination which will determine whether the water is the cause of a considerable amount of malarial sickness which is prevailing in our City at the present time.
If this can be done please inform me of the cost and the amount of water it will be necessary to transmit. The water in question is that which is used for drinking and general purposes throughout the City.
