On., last Friday evening Mr. D. B.

gave a banquet at the Ashlyn Hotel to
the officers of his administration and

Dr. EL L. MoflBtt emphasized the spirit

that we bad left the men of .our own
unit at a rest camp In England. A five
mile ride brought us to our final des
tinationBase Hospital No. e a full
base unit from tho M. G. V, Boston.
The hospital itself had been a French
school for boyl and had been taken
over first by the French themselves for
a hospital and later turned over to the
Americans. It was a large rambling
stone structure, four stories high and
the large school rooms and dormitories
had been turned into wards. In addi
tion to thia row after row of long
wards had been built out from the
main building and connected to It by
board walks, until It looked like a small
camp. The hospital was beautifully
situated among the trees and flowering
shrubs and we felt as if we had at
last reached port The chief led us all
duoty and tired to the nurses' mess
hall, and, as It was about four o'clock
in the afternoon, they served ta in
regular New England fashiea, with de
licious white beesxi and blackberry jam.
I always knew after that junt how
that bread and Jam tasted to the boys
whenj?they came down from the front
Aftenwe had refreshed ourselves we
wereltaken some little way from the
hospital grounds to our quarters a
mostwonderful old chateau it was
large and roomy, with wonderful
grounds around it. We were all quar
teredron the first floor as nearly all
the Thorns were large enough to hold
threeior four girls comfortably. So the
net fay the "Southern QMs," as we
were'Sfated-from "that day on,wwrtuir
duty at Base Hospital No. 6 and with
the exception of the two who were sent
out on detached duty, one to a hospital
camp during the "flu" epidemic, and
one to a mobile unit at the front, there
we stayed for the duration of the war.
At first, our duties were very light.
The Boston unit had been located here
already for six months, so the hos
pital was in good running order. Ad
ditions to 'the same were constantly
being made and our final number of
wards was 101 with a capactiy of 5000
Our work at this time consisted
largely of patients from the neighbor
ing camps the 18th. and 20th engin
eers, and colored stevedores from the
nearby docks, fractically all were
suffering from pneumonia and a largo
percentage of these had to be operated
upon for empyemia. However, when I
was placed on night duty I was given
what we called the "Nut Ward" epi
leptics, mostly, who had got by the ex
amining board, thrown a fit on board
ship, and had to be sent at once to the
hospital on landing. Those patients
stayed in the hospital for months some
times before a return passage could
be secured for them. A noticeable fea
ture of this obscure disease was that
when one patient fell into a fit prac
tically all the others followed suit, so
that my time was spent largely in
stuffing wooden applicators between
their teeth and in reviling the aston
ishing inefficiency of medical boards in
general, and in particular, those who
made it possible for a nurse to travel
8,000 miles, at endless expense to the
government, to nurse epileptics and
mental deficients that a trained blind
man should have recognized by touch
ac being impossible for a soldier. C'est
La Guerre, however. At this time,
April, 1918, very few Americans were
actually in the fighting but a little lat
er our first convoy of wounded )en ar
rived I rom t front and we went to
work in good earnest These boys
were mostly victims of hand grenade
explosions and were wounded mostly
sDout me legs and tups. One boy, a lad
of 17, carried 13 separate wounds, be
ginning with cuts behind his ears and
on his cheeks, the muscles of his left
leg were entirely paralysed. It usual
ly took me thirty minutes to do his
dressings. As the fighting grew fiercer
at the front our convoys were more
frequent and the wounds deeper and
more serious, fractures and amputa
tion became-numerotis and then the
Balkan francos and Dakin tubes be
came more popular than ever. After
the morning dressings the nurse went
around every two or three hours with
a bottle of Dakia's solution and a large
syringe and Injected enough of the
fluid into the tubes to keep the dress

so that the wet dressings did not ad
