CASE.—Private John Daly, Co. C, 106th New York Volunteers, aged 22 years, was wounded near Petersburg, Virginia, April 2d, 1865, by a conoidal ball, which penetrated the frontal bone a little to the left of the median line. He was, on the following day, admitted to the depot field hospital of the Sixth Corps, and on April 7th, was transferred to the Stanton Hospital, Washington. Simple dressings only were applied to the wound. The case progressed favorably, and on June 5th, 1865, Daly was discharged from service, and was pensioned. On March 29th, 1865, Pension Examiner George S. Gale reported that this man appears odd, but quite shrewd. He could then discover no signs of paralysis, but the patient complained of dizziness when stooping. His disability is rated total.
