Medico-Legal Journal (New York, New York).

In part of his recovered manuscript for the third volume of his memoirs, Lind-Werther-June says: "Note to publisher: I was employed by Clark Bell, LLD, founder and for many years, editor of Medico-Legal Journal. I once gave Dr. Herzog, its present editor, indisputable proof that I had been in the employ of Clark Bell. I refer to Dr. Herzog on this point. He once remarked that criminal lawyers knew “absolutely nothing about inverts.” I attended the criminal courts on Centre Street with Clark Bell as his clerk when he was defending criminals. His identity is known to the editor of the Medico-Legal Journal and the editor. I will get Dr. Herzog’s permission for this note. Quoted from note 7 in Earl Lind (Ralph Werther-Jennie June): The Riddle of the Underworld, VII. VOYEURISM. This suggests that Lind's birth name may be mentioned in Bell's papers, in Herzog's papers, or as a staff member of the Medico-Legal Journal, of New York.
