Mr. Fred Goodwin,

Dear Sir:

Your letter of the 14th inst. to the General Manager Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., offering for sale a dog with three legs and a short nub of a fourth leg, has been referred to this Institution, and in reply I wish to say that the Army Medical Museum does not desire the specimen.

Very respectfully,
