Excerpt from Base Hospital No; 9, A. E. F: A History of the Work of the New York Hospital Unit, During Two Years of Active Service

To write a complete history of the Unit which went out from the New York Hospital to serve in the Great War would require superhuman genius. An all-seeing eye, an all-hearing ear, an ever-flowing pen and a sleepless body would be only a partial equipment for the task. From the day that the organization mobilized until the time when it heard the joyful words, "Well done thou good and faithful servant, enter thou into the joys of civilian life" things were happening both day and night. Many of these things have never been recorded. Many were known only to a few, many are known only as rumors and many are family secrets and never should be told. However, some things should be known and these things the historian will record as facts in this book."

The material has been gathered from personal observation and a "war regulation diary," from reports supplied by the heads of the different departments, from the file in the hospital office and from various memoranda that chanced into the writer's hand.

To Dr. G. W. Zulauf, who assisted in the collecting of the material, and to Dr. Ralph Stillman, who read and offered valuable criticism and suggestions, I am deeply grateful.
