SmithField Martyrs—Smithfield "Salubrity"
Animal Husbandry, Public Health, Disease
Notes Thomas S Smith's opposition to 'private slaughter-houses in the thickest parts of London', places which he believes give off a 'mortal effluvia'. Argues that this is 'either design or pure ignorance' on Smith's part and needs to be balanced with Deputy Bedford's opinion that Smithfield Market is 'salubrious' to the City'.
