Letter of the Day: June 14

Curatorial Records: Numbered Correspondence 02331

Subject: A Guide to the Clinical Examination of the Blood.

War Department,
Surgeon General's Office
U.S. Army Medical Museum and Library
Corner of 7th and B Streets S.W.

Washington, D.C.. June 14, 1897

To the Surgeon General,
U.S. Army.


Referring to your letter of June 12, 1897 I respectfully request that I may be permitted to retain in the library of the Army Medical School the two copies of "A Guide to the Clinical Examination of the Blood," by Cabot. During class work these two volumes will be daily consulted by the Student Officers and in my opinion, therefore, two copies are none too many for use of the class.

Very respectfully,
Walter Reed
Surgeon, U.S. Army
Secretary, Army Medical School.
