Abstract

In Pennsylvania there are not as many cases of smallpox as there were on January 1, and although the disease seems to be under control there were three fresh cases at Reading within the last two weeks, one at Saxton, Bedford County, one death at Pittstown, Bedford County, and seven cases of smallpox and five of varioloid at Tyrone Forges, the disease at the latter locality traced directly to Reading. A mild case of varioloid has also been found in Philadelphia in the person of a young lady who contracted the disease in Connecticut. This is the first case in that city for some time.

In New York City the number of cases is gradually increasing, and there are cases at several points throughout the State. There are still cases at Winchester and Norfolk, Conn., and on February 9 a case was found on a railroad train in that State.
