ANTHRAX.
On the 2nd December, I received information that a man had been admitted to
Poplar Hospital on the 26th November, and died on the 1st December of Anthrax. On
making enquiries, it was ascertained that the man had been working in Tilbury Docks
for some time, and up to the 26th November he was working cargo from the
s.s. "China,"and assisted in removing 91 bales of goat skins.
