Letter of the Day: September 17 (1 of 2)

Curatorial Records: Numbered Correspondence 922


September 17 1895


To the Health Officer,

Washington, D.C.




I have the honor to inform you that the inoculation of two rabbits from the spinal cord of a suspected rabid dog – received on the 23d ultimo – has resulted negatively. At this date both animals are entirely free from any symptoms of rabies.


Very respectfully,

James Carroll

In the absence of Dr. Walter Reed
