From The Cork Examiner, 20 June 1865 -

BOOTH'S BODY.--The Washington correspondent of the Boston
Advertiser writes :--"It will not be very many days before the visitors
to the Army Medical Museum in that city will be granted a view of the
portion of the spinal vertebrae of the murderer through which passed the
avenging bullet. The relic will be esteemed a most valuable one by those
skilled in medical science, exhibiting as it does plainly the exact nature
of the wound, and demonstrating the intense agony in which Booth must
have passed his long hours of lingering death. It is now in process of
preparation at the Museum, and not accessible to the public."
