of the Board of Health, Cholera
report issued by the Council after a General Meeting held at the
Steeple Church, aimed to warn the public about the dangers of infectious
diseases and the prevention of them. The Report was produced after
consultation with the Board's counterparts in Edinburgh.
Board recommends that people of all ranks go out as little as possible
at night, to clothe themselves more warmly. During the prevalence
of an epidemic, all assemblages of large bodies of the working classes,
unless at church, should be avoided.
