Tompkins Square

New York

August 26th 1863


Surgeon J.H. Brinton U.S.A.

Washington D.C.




I send you by Express a few specimens of balls, extracted at Gettysburg, Pa. with an account of each case.


Also., a few spiculae of bone. It was my intention to leave them with you when in Washington but the matter escaped my memory.


You will hear from me whenever matters of surgical interest occur.


I remain

Very Respectfully

Your obt. Servt.

E. de W. Breneman

Asst Surgeon
