Dear Sir:  I forwarded a sample instrument and description of same, a "new combined trocar and aspirating needle," to the Chairman of the Section on Surgery for presentation at the meeting held at New Orleans, 1885. The instrument was presented (the Chairman informs me), but never returned to him. I trust that you will publish this card, so that the individual in whose possession the instrument now is, may know where it of right belongs. I trust the present possessor will forward the instrument to me so that I may use the same as a sample by which the manufacturer may produce another; if they will oblige me this much I promise them a return of the instrument, which I had constructed at an expense of about eight dollars.Marshalltown, Iowa.
