There have been only eight cases, as compared with 71 last year
These occurred within a period of two months, and, as we were
fortunately able to move them promptly to a hospital, a serious outbreak
I should like to mention that in January I received notice that a
person, who had been living in this District for nearly a year, developed
Small Pox three days after her arrival in the east end of London.
I endeavoured to trace the source from which it had been contracted,
but was unsuccessful. No case occurred here for some months before
and after this period.
The following are the details of the eight cases.
