December 19, 1895
To the Surgeon General, U.S. Army,
I have the honor to report that Mr. Morris Downs, a Laborer in this Division of the office, died at 7 P.M., last night, and to request that another laborer be appointed as soon as possible as the services of such laborer are very much needed.
Deputy Surgeon General, U.S. Army,
In charge of Museum and Library Division.
