ing every surgeon in the army to examine carefully every man in each regiment whom he knows or suspects is of feeble constitution, and certify to the Department the nature of the disability in question. Let this be done at once, so that the regimental surgeon's certificates can be received by the middle of next month, and the parties so discharged reach their homes by the first of December. If this matter is attended to, thousands and tens of thousands of dollars will be saved to the Confederate States, besides an amount of comfort and happiness conferred upon our deserving fellow-soldiers which it is impossible to estimate. If this end cannot be reached in any other way, it would be better to appoint surgeons temporarily for the purpose; but this would be expensive and tedious.

Discharge of disabled soldiers — Granting of furloughs. Camp Deas, Oct. 18, 1861.

The Government has thus in this case paid and supplied for four months a man who was of no sort of service, but a burden to his company, and who greatly desired a discharge. Many men, in their patriotic ardor, volunteered to serve their country in the field, who were entirely unfit for such exposure. Many may be found in my regiment who ar

s better and wiser, I think. Let the War Department, or the chief of the Medical Department, issue an order requiring every surgeon in the army to examine carefully every man in each regiment whom he knows or suspects is of feeble constitution, and certify to the Department the nature of the disability in question.
