Dear Mrs. Marsh

Dr. Kidder sends me the following memorandum:

The Bacillus Tuberculosus was first announced by Koch on the 10th April, 1882. -- as stated in my note. But prior thereto several different forms of bacteria had been noticed in tuberculosis specimens to which the disease had been attributed, erroneously, as now appears. Klebs, as well as Pasteur, had supposed himself to have made the discovery of the essential element in tuberculosis; & it is probably to one of these earlier, mistaken, announcements -------------------------------- Page -------------------------------- that Mr. Marsh referred. It is quite safe to rely upon the date given in my note. Pasteur's more important discoveries relate to [...] of silk worms, the anthrax of Chicken Cholera and the bacillus of anthrax.

Yours truly,

S. F. Baird
Mrs. George P. Marsh.
