2d Lieut Calvin

Shedd of the 7th Regt N.H. Vols having applied for a Certificate on which to ground an application for discharge from the service of the U.S. I certify that I have carefully examined this Officer and several Certificates from physicians under whose observation he has been for the last four months and find that he has been wholly prevented from military duty for five months past by Chronic Diarrhoea Contracted at Morris Island S.C. in the line of his duty; that he is still very much reduced in strength, unfit for duty and unable travel and will in my opinion be unable to resume his duties in a less period than four or five months Dated at Concord N.H. this 22d day of Dec 1863
