To the editor:

At the proper interval after the Hartford circus fire several of the house staff and perhaps a few fourth-year students spent several one-day trips back and forth to Hartford skin grafting the fire victims. I was one, as was Philip Brezina, Guido DeBlasio and probably Gervase Connor, who might have been an attending at the time. There were others whom I cannot remember.

We hoped we did a service, but we certainly learned how to use the Padgett Dermatome.
