A letter was read from the Local Govern- ment Board, stating that they had received a report from Dr. Wheaton upon the inves- tigation he had been instructed to make into the oiroumstances attending the death on the 2nd ultimo of John William Warwick, aged :five months, who lived at 4, Davis. oourt, Bethesda, and the cause of whose death was certified as vaccination erysipelas convulsions.
