In this letter to Governor Capper, General Leonard Wood, Commander of Camp Funston, thanks Capper for sending Adjutant General Huffman to Funston to assess the situation during the Influenza of 1918. Reinforcing his belief that he and his staff did everything in their power to keep deaths to a minimum, Wood states that "the Medical and Nursing Staff, here are entitled to the gratitude, and not the criticism of the relatives and friends of the men who are sick."

Creator: Wood, Leonard, 1860-1927
