Letter of the Day: April 20

Curatorial Records: Numbered Correspondence 02183

April 20, 1897.

Captain W.C. Gorgas, Asst. Surgeon, U.S.A.
Fort Barrancas, Florida,

My Dear Doctor:

Referring to your letter of April 10, 1897, I beg to say that a microscopic examination of the small piece of tumor sent by you proves it to be epithelioma.

Very sincerely yours,

Walter Reed,
Surgeon, U.S. Army,
