Health had the simplicity to at. whe
tempt the task of sending their hek

Mobile did right to refuse to al

cause they might be stupid enough
to proclaim malaria or dangue that
exist in Mobile to be yellow fever.
The country at large does not

quarantine against New Orleans,

the board of health had insisted
that there was no authentic case Si
of yellow fever in New Orleans.
