Asiatic Cholera

This pamphlet was published by order of the Police Commissioners of Dundee, in respect of the Nuisances Removal and Diseases Prevention Act, and was issued by Henry Austin, Secretary of the General Board of Health.

The report states that attacks of Cholera are uniformly found to be most frequent and virulent in low-lying districts, on the banks of rivers, and where there are large collections of refuse, particularly amidst human dwellings.
