Small-Pox in London


    THE statistical committee of the Metropolitan Asylums Board has recently presented an interesting report upon the cases of small-pox which have been treated by the Board during the year 1901. This report enables us to trace the growth of the present epidemic, and, so faras it goes, dealing with 1017 cases of smallpox, teaches us some very useful lessons upon a subject at the present time of the most profound interest, viz., the efficacy of vaccination as a protective measure.
