Table XI.— Number of Cases of Infectious Diseases as they occurred in the Four Chief

Wards of the District.

The reason I give for the Leyton Ward percentage being so much higher than the other Wards is because
of the greater number of Board Schools in the Ward, and the resultant larger infantile population.
