Description: In this letter from James Carroll to his wife Jennie Carroll sent from Camp Columbia Cuba, where he is stationed for the United States Yellow Fever Commission, Carroll discusses a lost letter with Jennie. Carroll states that "Tracey" is being discharged and has asked for a letter of recommendation that Carroll intends to provide. Carroll discusses Reed's visit to Cuba and how Reed intends to stay for several months and potentially send for his wife. Additionally, Carroll discloses that Reed has been recently recommended for the position of physician to the President and that Reed declined the appointment. Carroll also discusses how their research has been criticized for a lack of repeatability and how they should repeat their experiments to quell the criticism. Carroll comments on the situation with a renter and how he is excited that the children are doing well. Carroll concludes the letter with the preparations for Thanksgiving in Cuba and how he regrets not being able to spend the time with Jennie.
