One day in winter the surgeon came along to Kelly's bunk, put his hand on his head then over his heart. Kelly was cold. Soon the artists with the stretcher came in, rolled Kelly onto it and took him to the dead room. Along towards morning these same fellows carried in another body, tumbling it up against poor emaciated Kelly with a bang. It was noticed that Kelly moved and soon he sat up straight; his shoulders shivered a little and said: "By God, can't you give a fellow another blanket?" Ed beat those stretcher experts that time and lived many years after the war closed.
