Surgeon's Report September 1, 1863



Capt. Joseph Walther of the 41 Regiment of New York Vol. having applied for a certificate on which to ground an application for leave of absence. I do hereby certify that I have carefully examined this officer and find that "that he is suffering from a gunshot wound which passed through the arm wounding the bone this wound received at the Battle of Gettysburg."


and that, in consequence thereof he is in my opinion unfit for duty. I further declare my belief that he will not be able to resume his duties in a less period that "Twenty days," Dated at New York City, this 1st day of September 1863, B. Randall Surgeon.
