Captain Sparrow
Dear Sir,


It is my duty to inform you that the measles is prevailing to a considerable extent among the members of the Hyde County Company. It is not in my power to so adopt the proper measures to prevent it from spreading among the troops stationed here, and I therefore urge upon you the importance of doing something to protect the men belonging to your company from the disease.



Very respectfully,
Edward Warren MD
Surgeon
