Ode to Gamgee



Poetry, Drollery


Animal Husbandry, Disease, Sanitation

    Aimed at the veterinary surgeon John Gamgee, this article challenges the 'great outcry [...] 'Gainst diseased foreign cattle', and insists that such 'murrain' might be 'home-bred'. Proceeds to warn against the consequences of losing more cattle 'than all that we rear', and calls for 'careful inspection' but not to 'stop importation with view to Protection'.
