The treatment

Charlie slipped into un-conscientiousness before the procedure to clean his wound and pack it with a dressing of carbolic lotion. He woke a day later still sick. While he slept Susan helped treat another 50 or so men. As he improved she would make time to stop by his bed to talk about Dundee. The familiarity of their conversation was a comforting distraction. Within a week, Charlie was on his way to the UK.
