I have to thank Mr. Tidy, Inspector of Nuisances, for the
particulars contained in tables relating to the various Nuisances dealth
with by him. His time has been fully occupied during the year in
carrying out the many onerous duties appertaining to his office : he has
had a great deal of extra work on account of the outbreak of diphtheria
and he has kept me well imformed of those matters coming more
especially within my province.
JOHN KING, PRINTER, SOUTHALL.
