    Observes that owing to an alleged cattle epidemic, animals entering London are being compelled to 'put out their tongues' and 'have their pulses felt'. Satisfactory cattle will be issued with a 'clean bill of health' by a medical man, while 'indisposed' cattle will have to 'perform' quarantine outside London.
