I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of a circular, headed, “Memorandum for the information of Medical Officers.”
I have in my possession the skull of a New Mexico Indian, which I know nothing of the history of, except that it was brought direct from there by Mr James B. Dunlap – deceased - + given to me.
The skull is at your service. Please inform me how I shall send it, if you wish to have it in your collectin.
Your Obt Servt,
