Winder gives us a hospital scene, representing a Florence Nightingale seated by the couch of a wounded soldier, who is dictating a letter to the loved ones at home. The sketch is a very good one, though the soldier looks a little too "able-bodied" in the face of a man who has recently undergone an amputation of the arm.
