J. B. Jones, A Rebel War Clerk's Diary, chapter 40 (search)
knew not the road. So he set out for the city, with the intention of going down the river road this morning. But he grew worse after reaching home. Still, he resolved to go; and at 8 A. M., having marched all night nearly, he set out again, and met his sergeant — who had likewise diverged as far as the city — who said if he was really too ill to march, he would deliver the captain a surgeon's certificate to that effect, which would be a sufficient explanation of his absence. So, Surgeon C. Bell Gibson, upon an examination, pronounced him sick, and certified to the captain that he could not be fit for service for a week or ten days. At 3 P. M. he is in bed with a raging fever. There was a fight at Malvern Hill yesterday, the enemy being repulsed. There was also another assault on Petersburg, repulsed three times; but the fourth time our forces, two regiments, were forced back by overwhelming numbers from the outer line of defenses.

ion made by Dr. Wm. Grebe, who gave it as his opinion, from the general appearance of the deceased, that death was caused by an attack of apoplexy. It was proved that Mr. Dohm went to the theatre on Monday night with two other gentlemen, from whom he got separated in the crowd about the door at the close of the performance, and nothing is known of his movements subsequently. He was found lying upon his face, and the only mark visible was a slight bruise upon the forehead, caused by the fall. The jury, therefore, rendered a verdict that his death was caused by apoplexy. We are informed by Mr. Gibson, agent of the Express Company in this city, that Mr. Dohm was a man of industrious and exemplary habits, and universally popular among his acquaintances. He was unmarried, but leaves a mother and sister in Baltimore, to whose support he has mainly contributed for years past. His body will be placed in a vault in Hollywood Cemetery, with a view to its eventual removal to Maryland.
The recent Duel. --The jury of inquest in regard to the death of Washington J. Worsham, met again yesterday morning, but took no further action than to receive the testimony of Dr. C. Bell Gibson, which is as follows: I was called on Saturday, 7th December, 1861, to see W. J. Worsham. I found him suffering with a wound on the right hip bone, which I was informed was caused by a pistol shot. There was another wound on the other side of the body, in a nearly similar position, which I was informed was caused by a knife, used to extract a pistol-ball. A ball was shown to me, said to be the one extracted. Mr. Worsham's condition was as follows: His pulse was rapid and feeble; skin cool and clammy; countenance greatly altered, having an expression of great prostration There was considerable pain over the abdomen; oozing of blood in small quantity from the wounds; nothing but blood observed. Treatment directed was stimulation and anodyne medicines. He died at 11 o'clock Sund
