Fevers Upon Wheels
Disease, Transport, Hospitals, Patronage
Warning of the dangers of travelling in cabs previously occupied by fever patients, announces that surgeons at the London Fever Hospital have urged that 'fevers' be moved about in separate vehicles, and, pointing out that 'a hint from Punch of course will be sufficient on this head', urges readers to donate money towards this expensive enterprise, which will reduce Mr Punch's 'chances of infection when he takes a cab'.
