Medical Record

Case 18. - Private George A. Boyce, Co. B, 11th Vt., had a severe attack of measles Jan. 1, 1864, at Washington, a few weeks after his enlistment. He lost his voice and became much debilitated. While under treatment at Harewood hospital he was taken, June 4, with dysentery. On his arrival in Vermont via David's Island, New York Harbor, he was in a very low state. Treatment has relieved his diarrhoea and improved his general condition, but his voice has not been restored. He was transferred to the Invalid Corps Aug. 21, 1864. - Hospital, Burlington, Vt.
