TitleLetter from William M. Sweet, to James Mackenzie Davidson
Date6 April 1901
DescriptionInforms Mackenzie Davidson that he has had a number of foreign body cases in the last six months. Expresses frustration that many remain under the care of the physician for so long after their injury that by the time they are sent for an X-ray the body in the eye is too bound down with exudate. Notes that he has not yet succeeded in lowering the time of his exposures. Suggests it might be the fault of the equipment he is using.
