Editorial, Drollery


Public Health, Pollution, Government

    Reports on the good health of London and its suburbs. Adds that medical men think London's health could be improved if 'sanitary regulations were better observed', if it took a 'few draughts of a bill' being compounded in 'the great laboratory for all sorts of drugs at St. Stephen's', and if the statue of Arthur Wellesley (1st Duke of Wellington) were removed.
