C. Engelbreth,p. 700.
Engelbreth attempts to show that in all countries in which the goat flourished, there leprosy also flourished; and that in those countries where the breeding of goats gave way to the breeding of sheep and cattle, the disease practically vanished, as in England, Germany and France. In Denmark, the Royal edict against the breeding of goats was soon followed by the disappearance of leprosy from the country.
