Enteric Fever.
For the first time for many years I have to record the fact that
no death from Enteric Fever occurred during the year. One case is
registered who died during the last week in December, 1904, and
therefor must [appear in the official figures. Fourteen cases have
been notified. In two, a history of having partaken of shell fish
about fourteen days before the attack was clearly stated. In one, the
fish were collected from a portion of the foreshore in the Thames
estuary and eaten immediately without cooking. In no case could
I find any faultwith food, water or milk supply, except in two cases
there was a storage cistern slightly contaminated.

I append the usual table for comparison with former years:—
