    Excerpt from Report by the General Board of Health: On the Measures Adopted for the Execution of the Nuisances Removal and Diseases Prevention Act, and the Public Health Act, Up to July 1849

    Though; when we entered on our office, cholera had not as yet broken out in any part of the United King dom, it appeared to be steadily approaching us from the Continent, advancing precisely in its former track.

    The results of the experience of the disease which had been collected from so many sources, exhibiting its progress among populations in different climates and under widely different social conditions, indicated im portant practical measures of prevention; but it appeared to us to be desirable, before the adoption of any system atic plan of prevention, to ascertain whether the disease presented the same characters as on its former visitation; or, should it have undergone any change, in what respects it had become modified. In order to obtain authentic in formation on this point, we decided on sending our two Medical Inspectors to Hamburgh and Berlin, the near est cities ou the Continent in which the pestilence was at that time prevailing. They were on their way to Ham burgh, when they were stopped by an outbreak of cholera at Hull, which took place among a Prussian crew who had passed through Hamburgh On their way to England, whither they were coming to navigate a vessel which had been detained in the port of Hull owing to the Danish blockade. It appeared that these sailors had come from a healthy port in the Baltic, and that they had passed only a single night near the town of Hamburgh.
