the sewers; in the other cases where sewers have not yet
been constructed, cesspool receivers have been resorted to
as a temporary measure until sewerage is provided; in all

whilst iu many instances the means cannot be obtained of
perfect drainage, it nevertheless is so constructed as to
avoid the frequent nuisances observable in old property,

nuisances, constantly brought under the notice of the
Medical Officer and myself, are sedulously watched by your
Inspectors of Nuisances, to whose zeal and assiduity in
the performance of their duties I beg here to accord my
approbation.
