Inside Ward 2 : Summer Salads- 1950

Ann ( in bed) and girl with pig-tails.

I remember finding a live slug in my salad during my first summer there and calling the nurse over to inspect it convinced that at last I had found a reason why I could not eat my food.

She took one look at it and reprimanded me for “searching the food.”

I was told to “get on and eat it” while the slug walked around the edge of my plate.
I was 9 years of age at the time . And coughing up blood.
