Proceedings of the Royal Philosophical Society of Glasgow, 1881, Vol. 12 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Proceedings of the Royal Philosophical Society of Glasgow, 1881, Vol. 12 Small-pox was even more fatal in Glasgow. In 1813 Dr. Robert Watt published tables of the mortat in Glasgow from 1783 to 1812, and gives a summary of the results, from which we find that the average mortality from small-pox in the first period of six years was of the whole mortality. In the last six years, 1807 to 1812, when the community had received the benefit of vaccination, the deaths were only 390 per cent. Of the total mortality. To give you an idea of what this is, I have formed a table of the actual deaths from this disease in Glasgow, and I have added a note of what would have been the mortality, if the fatal cases of small-pox had been as numerous as in Dr. Watt's time, before vaccination was introduced.
