CASE 52.—Partial paraplegia.—Private Richard H. Martin, Co. D, 16th Maine; age 28; was admitted May 28, 1864, as a convalescent from typhoid fever. [About Dec. 15, 1863, while near Culpeper, Va., he was taken with fever and delirium and became very weak; he was treated in the field division hospital and transferred Feb. 1, 1864, to Stanton hospital, Washington, D.C.] On admission his health was impaired and his lower extremities partially paralyzed; he could walk, but slowly and unsteadily. He was discharged August 15 because of this disability.—Turner's Lane Hospital, Philadelphia, Pa.
