Dear Miss Lomax:
You may be assured that we are doing everything we can to remove the present discrimination which Negro nurses are facing in the Army.
Our Advisory Council, and the National Nursing Council for War Service, through Mrs. Riddle, are working on the matter and we hope very soon that you will be called for service.
I am turning your letter from the Service Command over to the National Nursing Council for War Service as another evidence of discrimination.
Kind personal regards,
Sincerely yours,
Mabel K. Staupers, R.N.
Executive Secretary
Miss Louise V. Lomax
1222 East Marhsall Street
Richmond, Va.

Miss Lomax is such a cute little Trick;
No wonder the boys all get sick;
Then beg for Ward Four,
Where they ask nothing more
than not to get better right quick.
