The author kindly sent PVJ a photocopy of this bulletin since he had no off-print. It is a light copy, so the images are not very legible.

Please note: Galbraith decided to identify Snow as a Dr. in the title of this article, even though he had no medical credentials other than completion of his apprenticeship the year he assisted Watson, an unlicensed apothecary, grandfathered under the Apothecaries Act of 1815 because he was already in practice when the act became law.
