THE CHOLERA IN TIPPERARY
SIR —Not having seen any notice taken of the appearance of cholera in this town your late publications, induces me to trouble you with some account thereof.
Since the 15th inst. there have been twelve cases, out of which number ten have died, five of them on yesterday.
We have seven Medical Men in attendance a Guinea per diem each, some of those gentlemen passed few hours in some of the Limerick Hospitals, this is the full extent their experience of this malady, and such is the frightful state of this little town, that all persons who can, with convenience to themselves, are quitting it.
The two Protestant curates, I am told, were called on yesterday to attend a patient (Perceval) but refused.
I remain yours, etc.
An OFFICER OF HEALTH
