This report is chiefly occupied with matters pertaining to the health and sanitation of the army in general and of individual posts in particular. A large amount of statistical matter has been arranged to illustrate these points, and interesting comparisons are drawn between the medical relations of our own army and those of European armies. About one-half of the report is made up of statistical reports of diseases treated at the various stations; these have been tabulated with much care. The entire report is a medical history for the year, of 24,726 men, representing the mean strength of the army.
