In Waterford, Dr. Mackesy, and in Cork, Mr. W. d'E. Parker,
have procured an expression of public opinion that a similar act is
desirable in those cities, and I, being desirous that other towns
should share the blessings of so good a measure, devoted a few leisure
days, in the autumn, to visiting them. The unhealthiness of some
of these provincial towns induced me to consult with your Society
as to the best remedies for it, and I have, therefore, written this
hasty paper, which I feel sets forth very imperfectly the immense
importance of the subject. I have omitted those of my notes
which refer to minute hygienic details.
