OBSERVATIONS on the Diseases in December 1793. THE HE {mallpox continued to prevail very much in the beginning of the

month, but in a much milder form; the puftules were in general distinct, and though the weather was warm for the leason of the year, yet the putrid and malignant symptoms had nearly disappeared: toward the latter part of the month, it became much less frequent. All the discales of the last month had a putrid tendency, which was not the case in this : quite at its close truly inflammatory diseases began to occur, such as pleurisies, with acute rheumatism; rheumatic affections were indeed common in the carly part of the month, but they were unaccompanied with fever, and were more generally confined to the head and face : warmth, with the application of bliiters behind the ears, proved in general the belt remedies. Apoplexies were rather frequent, and likewise paralytic atfections, which proved in many instances fatal to such as were advanced in years, or who had been fabject to former attacks. The scarlet fever was still occasionally met with, as were the mealles, bat both were very mild, and required liile all stance from medicine. Alhmatic people began to feel the change of the frainn; and persons in general labouring under diseases of the lungs, experienced ail aggravation of all their fympions.
