Chief of the Bureau of Animal Industry A. D. Melvin informs the Commissioner of Indian Affairs that Dr. F. C. Bigelow tested four cows for tuberculosis at the Carlisle Indian School and found one to be infected. Melvin requests that the infected animal be slaughtered in Harrisburg.

Acting Commissioner C. F. Hauke orders Superintendent Moses Friedman to follow Melvin's order. Friedman tells Hauke that the infected cow was so sick that it was slaughtered before he received his letter. Hauke relays this to Melvin.
