dc.description.abstractPlague, so far as its recent pandemic occurrence is concerned, although of more than ten years duration in India, still continues to occupy a place of primary importance, not so much "by reason of the numbers it kills,- for the "fevers" and cholera are more active in this respect,- as for the suddenness of its appearance, the extent of its range the rapidity of its diffusion and its want of amenability to treatment. But there is yet another reason for my choice of subject leading me to refer particularly to this disease and it is that a small but what might be called, a smart epidemic of the dread disease broke out recently in a town within the "ilaka" or jurisdiction of the district of Nadia, shortly before my arrival, and in the management and suppression of which I had a good deal to do. The outbreak was illustrative of many features now thoroughly well recognised in the epidemiology of the disease and it was full of interest from the point of view of sanitarian and epidemiologist alike. A brief account of the outbreak will be included in this work and it will, I trust, prove of some interest. The way in which it was kept under control and prevented from extending over a large area, which it had many facilities for doing, in fact "the manner in which it wan hemmed in, within the municipal limits of the town where it started, show what energetic measures can do, if adopted on a sound and scientific basis and promptly carried out in practice.en
