CASE 25.—Private H. Millineth, Co. E, 9th New York Zouaves, was wounded at Roanoke Island, February 8th, 1862, by a round musket ball, which entered beneath the anterior convexity of the clavicle and buried itself in the soft tissues. The wound healed without trouble, the ball becoming encysted. Millineth entered Armory Square Hospital, at Washington, a year afterward, with typhoid fever. When convalescent, the ball was detected in the supra scapular fossa, and was excised, April 28th, 1863. The man was discharged, well, May 4th, 1863, on the expiration of his term of service. Surgeon D. W. Bliss, U. S. V., presented the specimen, figured in the wood-cut (FIG. 296).
