Excerpt from The Nineteenth Century, Vol. 23: A Monthly Review; January-June, 1888 IN January 1874, exactly fourteen years ago, I ventured to write an article, which appeared in the Contemporary Review entitled Cre mation the Treatment of the Body after Death, advocating as forcibly as I could its employment instead of the method by burial in the soil. The reason assigned for taking this step was my belief, sup ported by a striking array of facts, that cremation is now a necessary sanitary precaution against the propagation of dis ease among a population rapidly increasing, and becoming large in relation to the area it occupies.
