Pagina 117 - The havoc of the plague had been far more rapid : but the plague had visited our shores only once or twice within living memory ; and the smallpox was always present, filling the churchyards with corpses, tormenting with constant fears all whom it had not yet stricken, leaving on those whose lives it spared the hideous traces of its power, turning the babe into a changeling at which the mother shuddered, and making the eyes and cheeks of the betrothed maiden objects of horror to the lover.
Pagina 15 - An inquiry into the causes and effects of the variolae vaccinae, a disease discovered in some of the western countries of England, particularly Gloucestershire, and known by the name of the cow pox.
Pagina 111 - ... is upon the left arm at the insertion of the deltoid and along its posterior border. The several punctures or abrasions should be made at some little distance from each other. It has been found by abundant observation that both the quality and the quantity of the vaccination bearavital relation to subsequent protection from small-pox.
Pagina 26 - In this dairy country a great number of cows are kept, and the office of milking is performed indiscriminately by men and maid servants. One of the former having been appointed to apply dressings to the heels of a horse affected with the grease...
Pagina 26 - One of the former having been appointed to apply dressings to the heels of a horse affected with the Grease, and not paying due attention to cleanliness, incautiously bears his part in milking the cows, with some particles of the infectious matter adhering to his fingers.

Pagina 106 - Seaton and others, as the limit beyond which, "whatever the local success of the vaccination, no constitutional effects will be imparted." In these Notes will also be found the details of cases where the attempt to vaccinate with bovine virus was only successful after one or more repetitions, with loss of valuable time, or where such attempt finally proved wholly unsuccessful. With the exception of one group of six cases — a family...
Pagina 99 - ... in its results — well performed, can save many lives, as most certainly it can, and prevent much suffering and sorrow, it should surely always be done with the greatest care, and in the best known way. The success of all operations depends on nice care and management. Operations for hernia and for stone, for instance, if roughly, carelessly, and badly done, end badly: so it is with vaccination; and, so far as the public are concerned, it is quite as objectionable to them, no doubt, to die of...
Pagina 112 - ... produced. As pertinent to this point I shall quote from a paper by Dr. JB Russell, of Glasgow. " The number of vaccine marks can have no meaning, excepting so far as they indicate in a general way the quantity of lymph introduced into the system.
Pagina 113 - ... value is increased. Hence, I am inclined to think that the local and permanent phenomena which would best indicate the quantity of lymph introduced, and consequently show even more striking relations to the mortality, would be the superficial area of good vaccine cicatrices.
