Disease, Medical Treatment

    Describes the 'attacks' which ultimately killed 'John Company, E.I.S.', a reference to the demise of the East India Company as a consequence of the India Act of 1858. Suggests that the deceased died of advanced age, an 'imprudent' life, and moreover, 'intestinal attacks'. Adds that 'an attack of inflammation (Inflammatio Populi) made terribly short work of him'.
