Dear Mrs. Bowen:
Thank you for your letter of December 4 concerning "Dungeons and Dragons". I have also received presumably at your request materials from elsewhere on the same subject at about the same time. I obviously am concerned by the reports that I have read and have taken the liberty of discussing this with some of my colleagues with an interest in physiological impact of such activity on youngsters.
If I come up with anything positive that you should be aware of I will certainly be in touch.
Sincerely yours,
C. Everett Koop, M.D.
Surgeon General
