My dear Miss Annie Bosworth
I reply to your inquiry of 15.6.11 about Marybai (Tunabai Kukde). I write to inform you that she dissected fully both a leg & thorax - doing carefully the muscular, vascular & osseous system - & passing her class examination on these parts. She did not take her public examination. She studied the [?} & [?], but left before the class examination on these parts. She did very little Histology.
