San Antonio Daily Light (Newspaper) - October 30, 1891, San Antonio, TexasFriday octoheu80, 1891. Continued from seventh chapter x. Contributed the Kukler of Sukau House. The Jit last faint his former life Cirinc Buck lit him. To begin with 1 never knew the Man in his lifetime. It was in my official capacity As keeper of the Hospital dead room that i received him on Tho morn ing following the Accident which caused Liis death. 1 and work enough on my hands in those Days god knows for the poor Fellows were dying right and left and i am now Able to recall Maurice Green to my mind Only on account of the in snal manner of his death. 1 pre pared his body for the grave and it was my hands that set Bovo his last resting place the Pine Board that bears his name. Now Lor the first question How do 1 know that the Man 1 helped to Bury on the Day following the explosion was Maurice Green let me answer the question by asking one. Why should the attendant in the Ward in which he died report a false name to me Kurtly the attendant could not have been mistaken in the Man. Surely he could have had no motive in deceiving me. Look at the common sense of the thing. Tho attendant bad fed and nursed him through an attack of brain fever. If Fitch an experience As that won t Post one Man As to the identity of another what will then again the Man Pellon is pleased to Call the foraging Soldier did not be Long in Pel ton s Ward. So Only one Man under his care was killed by the explosion. The wounded were taken Back to their Beds and the Only dead Man he was responsible for he brought to me in person. Yon Mustad Mithat the wounded men knew their own Beus. Stop i remember now that one of the wounded men Lay moaning for weeks and weeks and never knew until Long afterwards to whose kind old Ces to owed his recovery. Then his Mother came from new York and took him away. You can t argue with me that thu s self sacrificing Mother not knowing her own son took another Man away to her Home. So that disposes of the question of Iden Tity which i Iii Tohl has been raised in the Case. Green was the Only Man who Leit Pelton s Ward for Good that night. Pelton a identification is therefore com plete. Stop again i have been too fast and i have a tripling confession to make. The Case which looks so Strong to me now did not seem so then. At the Lime 1 helped to Bury Maurice Green i did not Bee n t to depend entirely upon the attendant s identification. 1 presume my own observations made at the time amount to nothing but 1 May As Well set them Down. When the powder exploded in the hos Pital the men grouped about the fire were for the purpose of increased warmth wrapped in Tho blankets from their Beds. The blankets bore numbers corresponding with the numbers of the Beds to which they belonged. When the body of Maurice Green was brought to me his hands still clasped the Blanket he wore at the time of his death. The num Ber on Hatwan Keowns ninety nine. The showed that the number of his bed was ninety nine. This satisfied me. 1 did go so fur As to make an examination of the dead Man s pockets but i found them to be empty. The clothing which had been brought to the Hospital with him had been destroyed and there was no record of the preservation of any article found on his person. Now you have All i know of the Circum stances of Maurice Green s burial. Now for the second question. What can i remember of the Man from new York in the first Case 1 can t see what the Case of private Maurice Green has to do with the Case of the Man from new York. Perhaps that is no affair of mine. Whether it is or not i will obey orders. Within a week of the time of the explosion the roads became passable and the Hospital Camp was broken up. There is no knowing How Long our sick and wounded soldiers might have remained there Only for the fact that the Bihing had been shattered beyond repair by the Accident. The Man from new York was in no condition to be moved. He was assigned quarters in a farm House a Short distance from the site of the Camp and i was de tailed to attend him. The Prospect was a dreary one for me. But there is no such thing As a private s having his own. Way Ivd i had to make Tho Best of it Tho Only of Hope i cheer Jue us the Soldier guard marched was conveyed in the last words of the officer making Tho detail. Lieutenant Melville s friends will soon arrive from Tho Mosaid and then you can join your owing to i he Lack of transportation Tho Young Man s relatives did not reach him until three weeks had passed. Whoa they did arrive he was still unconscious. They had Learned of our excl whereabouts Only after a visit to the jumping place of the company which Luul acted As guard to the Hospital. With their instructions for finding Tho farm Louse they had also received some writ ten Onk is to lie delivered to me. Tho orders Wen us Short As they were disagreeable stay with your charge so Long is Yoa to of i said just now that lieutenant Mel Ville still unconscious when his rely tins arrived Fly relatives 1 mean his Iirilli Erand i famous new York surgeon n some Way connected with the family be was Mure than unconscious. He was raving night and Day like an insane per son. Mis Pule wrist Coralic i Perli cd manners Ami a perfect by his Side nearly a month be fore lie recognized her. The morning he regained consciousness Lis Mother acting under the directions of the surgeon took his wasted hand in Ler own and called his mime. The indent s eyes rested inquiringly for a moment upon the kind face above him ill turned away. 1 was in another part of the room at the time but the cry of Ingonish that came from the bedside the moment told to what had Hap the wounded Man although y in Tho full Possession of his Sui Ives had failed to recognize his Mother the surgeon quieted the Mother Ash it he might and led her away. Then a systematic examination of the Vii lid s shattered mind. For Days the surgeon s skillful efforts produced no Lopp ii results. The injured Man s brain retained not line incident of his life previous to the Ime he was struck senseless by the Acci in the Hospital. He did not even the occasion of his injury. Lieutenant Melville had been a patient student mid had been regarded in his As a Well read Man. Now very result of his Early studies had lapsed from his mind. He could not re Iii in Orr one single event of his innit Lily. His mind was an absolute Plank. At last by such patient efforts As Only a Mother could sex to faint Glim Ner Wiigs of his Cornu a life crime Buck to in scenes of his childhood coming first my most distinctly. At first he recon Only such scenes As were suggested to him time after Limo by his Mother s Oving words. Thi n to began to ask pm Sliu Iio a Gatling circumstances to which his attention had not inc a called. The Joy of the Mother at these faint Evi Dences of her son s recovery is ii Pond 11 y poor Powers of description. The surgeon constantly warned her not to be Tco sanguine. You must he said that the injury to Richard s brain was inflict Al Jisc Asho was recovering from an at tack of brain fever when lie was weak mentally As Well As physically. I Hope Tor the Hest but it May be years before Liis brain recovers its former strength. Such cases Are not rare. To will soon Well physically but mentally to must begin Hie with this faint Hope in her heart mrs. Melville started Home with her invalid son. I returned to my regiment and the farmhouse and All 1 knew there passed out of my life. Chapter i. by Charles Gates.
