CASE.—Private Richard S. McLaury, Co. G, 101st New York Volunteers, received, in the engagement near Chantilly, Virginia, September 1st, 1862, a fracture of the right parietal, and a slight wound of the scrotum. He was conveyed to Washington and admitted to Douglas Hospital. On October 25th, a piece of bone was removed from the skull; otherwise the wound did well, and the patient was sent to Jarvis Hospital, Baltimore, where he was discharged from the service on December 27th, 1862, and pensioned. In September, 1863, Examiners O. S. Bundy and J. G. Orton reported that this pensioner had defective hearing and vision, and that his intellect was impaired and general health seriously undermined. They rated his disability as total. No improvement is noted in the reports since that date.
