    Discusses a report in the Bristol Times of a remedy for preventing smallpox scars that involves bathing the marks in tripe-liquor. Struck by the fact that tripe is derived from the same quadruped from which smallpox vaccinations are produced, suggests that the 'internal use' of tripe might also stop smallpox. Recommends that anybody 'apprehensive of catching small-pox' should try this experiment.
