Letter of the Day: June 27

Curatorial Records: Numbered Correspondence 05310

War Department,
Surgeon General's Office,
U.S. Army Medical Museum and Library.
Corner of 7th and B Streets S.W.
Washington, June 27, 1901.

To the Post Surgeon
Columbia Barracks,
Quemados, Cuba.


At the time of my departure from your station I left on hand in Pathological Laboratory one incubator, under the impression that it was not part of the property for which I was responsible. I now find, however, that this incubator is borne on my annual return and I, therefore, enclose herewith the proper invoices and request that you will be kind enough to receipt me for the same.

Very respectfully,
Walter Reed
major & Surgeon, U.S.A.
