1901. The book begins: We were at the Sanitary Commission's field
hospital. There were ambulances, tents, surgical appliances. The
doctor and his daughter had been busy all morning. On a bed, swung
by pulleys and ropes, lay the outstretched form of a gallant enemy
who had been picked up on the field of Bristoe by one of Dr.
Khayme's ambulances. Colonel Paull's wound was in the throat, so
near an artery that the most delicate care was required in handling
him. Lydia, a nurse trained in the British hospital at Bombay, and
proficient through experience in the campaigns of McDowell,
McClellan, and their successors, was giving herself to this
seemingly fatal ease with great patience, while the skill of Dr.
Khayme had already affected a little alleviation of the poor man's
agony; the Colonel was yet speechless, indeed great fear was felt
that he would never regain his power of speech.
