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.
1st Lieut. Asst. Surgeon, U.S.A.
