    Distinguishes 'two types' of this 'distemper', one being an 'epizoic among milchcows in England', the other being the kissing by 'Romanists' of the foot of the pope or of the toe of a statue in St Peter's, Rome. Warns that both are 'highly contagious', the religious form being spread by various English Catholics.
