Excerpt from Thirteenth Report of the State Board of Health of the State of New Hampshire for the Fiscal Year 1894 and to July 1, 1895
Owing to the inability of the secretary to place in the hands of the public printer the material for this report in season to have it printed before the adjournment of the legislature, it is thought best by the board to revise the copy and bring it down to the date of issue, July 1, 1895 therefore this report covers practically a period of eighteen months. In accordance with a change in the law the reports of this board will hereafter be issued biennially instead of annually.
The experience of more than a decade has fully convinced the board that the position which it has always taken with reference to the character of the reports has accomplished more in the line of sanitary knowledge and advancement among the people of the state than could have been attained had the reports been devoted more to scientific investigations and technical sanitation. We have there fore endeavored to make our reports, or at least considerable por tions of them, readable for the masses, and the large demand made by our citizens for these volumes indicates that they are highly appreciated. Three thousand copies are issued annually, but the call for them has exhausted the reports of certain years so that now it is impossible for the board to furnish a complete set.
