CASE 1739.—The case of Private J. T. Reed, Co. C, 1st Vermont Cavalry, has already been detailed on page 21 of the First Surgical Volume, and it remains only to add the report of Examiner J. Nichols, of Washington, who certifies, December 28, 1864: "Severe sabre cut across the left elbow joint, fracturing the olecranon process, and inflicting a serious flesh wound and severing tendons of forearm. The elbow joint is anchylosed and entirely useless. Also received a severe cut on the head, fracturing the right parietal bone and depressing the inner table. Several pieces of bone have been removed, and dizziness and pain, almost always present, has resulted." The subsequent examiners report substantially the same. The pensioner was paid September 4, 1875.
