Thousands of persons seeking trace of relatives and friends have passed by the long, silent rows, attempting, by the flickering light of lamps and lanterns, to Identify the ones they sought. 1 Virtually every building in the city which could be converted into a hospital is filled with wounded, many of them so desperately injured that there is no hope of their recovery.
