Beef and Bacon in the City



News-Commentary, Drollery


Animal Husbandry, Disease, Sanitation, Scientific Practitioners, Methodology

    Discusses an extract from Henry Letheby's report on the sanitary state of London (a version of which appeared as Letheby 1865), which describes a small outbreak of cattle disease in the City dairies. Attributes the limited extent of the outbreak to the cleanliness of the dairies, and thinks the 'Bacon' of most cows in this region was saved by the 'Baconian philosophy practically applied in experimental sanitary precaution'.
