This monograph is timely in its appearance, as there is a very general prevalence of the disease in many parts of our country, and particularly in the more populous centres.

The author gives a very satisfactory nomenclature of influenza, its definition, the origin, and spread of the disease by contagion, with a history of the several epidemics which have prevailed.
