State prisoner C. C. Clay has been troubled with diarrhea during the past week; is much weakened in consequence, and on yesterday was scarcely able to walk around, and at night was much prostrated. This morning he seems decidedly improved, and I have no doubt but that he will recuperate under his extended limits.

I would respectfully recommend that the outdoor exercise of prisoner Davis be more fully indulged in, and that some arrangement be made to prevent the noise caused by the constant tramp of the sentinels, which seems to irritate his nervous system.

Your obedient servant,

GEO. E. COOPER,

Surgeon, U. S. Army.
