Letter of the Day: June 13

Curatorial Records: Numbered Correspondence 07571

Surgeon General's Office
U.S. Army Medical Museum and Library
Corner of 7th and B Streets
Washington, June 13, 1904.

1st Lieut. John R. Devereux,
Asst. Surgeon, U.S.A.
Fort Meade, S.D.


Replying to your letter of May 30th forwarding specimens of skin scrapings, I have the honor to report the result of the examination as negative. No fungi could be detected in the material after treatment with caustic potash solution nor after staining with a solution of methylene blue.

This report would have been made earlier but for the fact that Your letter was mislaid.

Very respectfully,
James Carroll
1st Lieut. Asst. Surgeon, U.S.A.
Curator, Army Medical Museum.
