Describes the anxiety of narrator's wife respecting a disease he may have caught from the pigs and chickens on his farm. She sends for a doctor who examines their baby and discovers a 'new rash' on its body. The doctor advises the family to go abroad for 'a change', a proposal with which the narrator agrees because this will allow the 'Inspector' to rebuild his pigstys in a more sanitary fashion. The narrator also describes his continued problems with 'rheumatics'.
