Letter of the Day: June 23

Curatorial Records: Numbered Correspondence 02342

June 23, 1897

Mr. Albert Worsham
National home, D.V.S.
Hampton, Va.

Dear Sir:

Your letter of the 20th inst. has been received and in reply I would say that the eight-legged kitten referred to is not desired for this Museum. It has no commercial value.

Very respectfully,
D.L. Huntington
Deputy Surgeon General, U.S. Army,
In charge of Museum & Library Division.
