II. The following extract from General Orders, Numbers 36, of 1862, from the War Department, with the notes attached, relating to the discharge of the sick, will be applied in all similar cases to men antitled to be mustered out:

When too long a delay would arise in descharging the men because of the remote station of his company, application will be made by the medical officer to the Adjutant-General for such accounts of the man as his records will furnish. To this partial descriptive roll the medical officer will add the period for which pay is due the man since his entry into he hospital. The man will then be discharged, and then recceive the pay and traveling allowances thus shown to be due him, leaving the balance due him on account of clothing, retaining pay &c., for settlement in such manner as may herefter be determined. (See notes.)

NOTES. - In cases when too a delay would arise in deischarging a man because of the remote station of his company, and when no descriptive list or partial descriptive list can be obtained from this office, the men referred to will be discharged under this order given them on the quartermaster's department for transportation to their homes. This order will be signed by the same officer who signs the discharge. The quartermaster's department will furnish transportation to such men upon the presentation of this order, requiring them also to show their discharge. The sentence "to this partial descriptive roll the medical officer will add the period for which pay is due the man since the entry into the hospital" will be understood to give him pay on his final statement from the muster next preceding his entry into the hospital until the date of hid discharge.
