The epidemic reached its height in the middle of April just as the American mission arrived. New cases then numbered 1,101 daily, but It must be remembered that these wers the figures only of the victims who came to the military hospitals.

"In fact, few figures of any kind are to be had, but presum ably the total deaths from the epidemic have been about 100,-' 000 and the number of victims down with tlie disease at ths time we took charge was very likely of equal magnitude.

"As a result of our four months' work here, 1 think i can safely say that Serbia Is a re generated nation from a sanitary point of view, and the effects of this I feel certain will be re flected ln her national life and development for years to come."
