    Notes the introduction by Henry T Liddell (1st Earl Ravensworth) of 'A Bill for preventing Local Authorities to dispose of Sewage, instead of sending it into our rivers'. Punch believes this is 'too mild' and urges towns around London to 'do what is proper without waiting to be made to do it'. Later notes a debate on the British Museum. (210)
