  • Content: This manuscript fragment was originally part of a larger leaf which comprised two other fragments as well: tex.00297 and tex.00247. Before the sheet was cut into three pieces, this fragment formed the middle part. The writing it contains is related to a section headed "Fifty Army Hospitals Here—1863—Spring," a section of the article "'Tis But Ten Years Since. (Fourth Paper.)," published in the New York Weekly Graphic on February 21, 1874. Further revised, it was later published in Memoranda during the War (1875–76) as "Hospital Perplexity." This was reprinted in Two Rivulets (1876), Specimen Days & Collect (1882–83), and Complete Prose Works (1892).
