The general sanitary condition of the Home and grounds has been excellent throughout the year. The water supply and drainage are satisfactory, and there has been no prevalent or epidemic disease among the inmates.

In a letter to you dated March 17, 1901, attention was called to the unsuitableness of the amusement room, its deficiency in air space, etc.

The well-being of the patients has been very much enhanced since the installation of the apparatus in the kitchen referred to in my last report and the inauguration of the plan which permits us to hire able cooks from civil life. The food is well prepared and very satisfactory to the patients.

Another source of great comfort to the patients has been the construction of a band stand in front of hospital, where the Home band holds a concert from 10.30 to 11.30 a. m. twice a week.

Under the direction of senior clinical assistant, Dr. A. B. Herrick, during the last two years much valuable work has been conducted in the clinical laboratory con

cerning the prevalent diseases, cause of death, etc., among the inmates. The information so obtained is being tabulated; it is of such a technical nature and so very valuable to professional men engaged in the same work in similar institutions that I have concluded to render the subject in the form of a report, which I desire to submit to the Surgeon-General of the Army for insertion in his annual report, provided this meets with your sanction. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, LOUIS A. LA GARDE,

Major and Surgeon, U. S. A., Attending Surgeon. The GOVERNOR OF THE HOME.
