CASE.—Private John E. Edmonds, Battery E, 2d New York Heavy Artillery, aged 22 years, was wounded at the battle of Petersburg, Virginia, June 18th, 1864, by a conoidal ball, which fractured the right parietal bone. He was admitted on the same day, to the 1st division, Second Corps, hospital, and was transferred to the Carver Hospital, Washington, on June 22d. The functions of the brain were found to be, in a measure, impaired. He remained in the Carver Hospital until October 25th, when he was transferred to the Ricord Hospital. Being regarded unfit for the Veteran Reserve Corps, he was discharged from service on March 22d, 1865, and pensioned. Pension Examiner Alonzo Churchill reports that the patient suffered pain in the head with dizziness, which was increased by exercise, and rates his disability more or less permanent.
