Gilpin Run Away with as Usual



News-Commentary, Drollery


Vaccination, Politics, Medical Treatment, Government

    Notes Charles Gilpin's opposition to the vaccination act, and his attempts to convince those who deny the efficacy of a well-performed vaccination by 'reason and argument'. Adds that just as John Gilpin 'borrowed a horse from his friend the Calenderer, and it ran away with him', so Charles Gilpin 'has borrowed a hobby from the laissez-faire livery stables, and it has run away with him'.
