CASE. Private William S. Dingman, Co.

He was admitted to the 3d division, Sixth Corps, hospital, and on the 24th, sent to the Frederick hospital, Maryland, but shortly afterwards transferred to the Sloan Hospital, in Vermont. The wound healed and the patient was discharged from service on May 22d, 1865, at Brattleboro . In September, 1867, he was in receipt of a pension. In March, 1869, Dr. O. F. Fossett reported that this pensioner, having had a fracture involving the frontal sinus, had ulceration with a discharge of fetid sanious matter in the nose, with partial loss of vision and much pain and dizziness, incapacitating him for labor, and producing a disability rated at three fourths, without likelihood of improvement.
