Abstract: In this paper, for the incompleteness of which I shall at once apologize, I propose to sketch briefly, and as far as my observations have extended, the sanitary state of our city, being convinced that much disease, and many consequent deaths, are avoidable by improvements which may be very readily attained. It is very generally believed that the healths of towns, especially as evidenced by the death-rate, which may be well called the barometer of public health, must be always inferior to that of rural districts; but of late years, owing partly to an admirable system of inspection, and consequent improvements in the former, and partly to ignorance or inattention to sanitary matters in the latter, their conditions are becoming equalized.
