She is a "ministering angel" without any exaggeration in these hospitals, and as her slender form glides quietly along each corridor, every poor fellow's face softens with gratitude at the sight of her. When all the medical officers have retired for the night and silence and darkness have settled down upon those miles of prostrate sick, she may be observed alone, with a little lamp in her hand, making her solitary rounds.

Founder of Modern Nursing.

Lo! in the house of misery

A lady with a lamp I see

Pass through the glimmering gloom

And flit from room to room

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
