A Farewell to Arms Chapter 22
The next day it rains and Fred feels sick. He drinks some brandy only to have the surgeon diagnose him with jaundice. Because of this, he is sick for two weeks and cannot go away for his leave with Catherine. One day, Miss Van Campen finds all of his empty liquor bottles and gets angry because she thinks he got jaundice on purpose. Miss Gage comes in and says she'll swear that he never took a drink but Miss Van Campen returns to retrieve the bottles. Fred loses his leave as a result.
