    Begins by urging that 'State Doctors, right and left' need 'united action' to 'stamp out' the cattle plague. Invites them to kill the patient ('for prevention') if they cannot fulfil their 'curative intention', and to separate 'Sound herds' from 'tainted kine'. Pleads with these doctors not to 'make the murrain-stricken Bull, / A stalking-horse for Party', and upholds the need for 'simultaneous traction' for terminating the disease.
