May I ask whether it would be
possible to borrow or to purchase
6 bottles Tincture of Myrrh2
(if 4 oz. bottles)
from the Medical Stores, replacing
them in any way you shall direct,
either in money or in kind?
I should not make this request
had I not found upon enquiry that
the article is not to be had nearer
than Constantinople - otherwise than from
the Govt stores.
I have the honor to be
