The left panel was donated by the Woman’s Relief Corps of the North. Mabel Boardman stated that it was inspired by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, Santa Filomena, that glorified the work of Florence Nightingale: "A lady with a lamp shall stand in the great history of the land, a noble type of good, heroic womanhood." Noted for her healing powers, Louis Comfort Tiffany’s St. Filomena is surrounded by attendant maidens who provide love and compassion. One maiden carries a shield emblazoned with the Red Cross emblem. She is followed by Hope, carrying a banner with an anchor on painted on it. By her side is Mercy, bearing gifts. Next is Faith, who carries a torch and palm fronds and then Charity, who offers a healing drink. In the foreground, a mother holds her child, who has gathered flowers, while in the background, a maiden carries the Red Cross banner.
