Humorous Tale from Annals of KGH

A snippet from the newspaper column, “Strolling,” by Bert Vincent, local-color writer:

Which reminds me of an operation at General Hospital that Dr. C. W. Rain tells about.  The patient, from Newport, was named Hale.  An interne named Sleet gave the anaesthetic.  There was a nurse named Snow, and a nurse named Snowden.  Rain, Hale, Sleet, Snow, and Snowden.  Yet, Dr. Rain says the patient recovered!

[This must have occurred between 1902 and 1905.  Jocelyn Snowden was in the KGH Class of 1905.]
