I certify after carefully examining Cap. Calvin H. Senter of Co. I 51st Va Regt that his is not able to perform the duties of a soldier because of several diseases viz: haemorrhoids (piles), a severe cough, which he has been suffering from for several years, and a recent attack of measles which has rendered him very feeble and entirely unfit for any Kind of duty. He has not been able to do any duty for more than three months. I do not think he will entirely recover his health and therefore recommend that his resignation be accepted and he be discharged from the service of the C.S.A.
