Inside corners with chair rail molding

I have a piece of molding that I removed from the wall in order to replace the drywall behind it and now I am getting ready to put it back on the wall. It already has been bevel cut at what appears to be a 45 degree angle.

I have to cut another piece that will join to it at the inside corner. How do I do this without coping the longer piece that has already been beveled.

The new piece will be bevelled in the opposite direction as the long one. The new piece should be put on the wall first, then the longer one.

And god bless you if it's a true 90 deg. inside corner. If not caulking is you friend.
The right way as you already know would have been to install that small piece first then cope in the longer piece.

Oh, hot glue it in place, don't nail it, as it will split on you. Cut the small piece to fit first, as it may take a couple of cuts to get it right. Never cut small pieces of wood.
