Letter of the Day: September 1

Curatorial Records: Numbered Correspondence 1627


Fort Reno, Okla. Ter.

Sept. 1, 1896.


Dear Doctor:-


The photographs of the malarial parasite were duly received. If I do not hear from you to the contrary, I shall consider that you meant to have me keep them.


There were no cases of malarial fever during August at this post. But if I am again unable to find the parasite in a case which I feel certain from other evidence is malarial, I shall certainly take advantage of your very kind offer and send on some dried specimens.


With many thanks, I am,


Very truly yours,


Sam Q Robinson

Surgeon, U.S.A.
