AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Called upon to tend to a sick man, the Padre diagnoses sun-stroke. The man's delerium leads to a threatening situation for some of his mates. The Padre is reminded of a previous visit during which he had also been called upon to attend a very ill man. With limited resources, and no access to outside medical help, the Padre managed to tend the man for a few days until the next train arrived, whereupon he was transported to hospital.
