Excerpt from Second Report of the Board of Health to the Honorable City Council of the City of Nashville: For the Year Ending July 4, 1877 Hygiene, or more properly civilization, of which it is a phase, may be summed up in two words morality, comfort - Levy. Medical science has been, and is to be, for centuries to come, a mighty moral agent, which, in its application to social and polit ical economy, promises the most brilliant results. We may men tion the arrest and extinction of epidemics as one of these. The application of an efficient medical police to our larger towns, by the establishment of Boards of Health, with the requisite powers, may be reckoned as one of the most important results accomplished by the social influence of the profession.
