Board of Health
Palatka, Fla. Dec 4th 1888
E. A. Perry
We have been kept so busy during the
past three months that we did not make the
usual semi-monthly reports, as you requested.
In discharging our duties we
have had much to contend with; but we
feel thankful in having been successful
in keeping our county free from infection;
and can report that up to this date, there
has been no case of yellow fever in Putnam
The Quarantine has cost the county so
far about $7,000, and the city of Palatka
about $5,500 – making a total of $12,500 00/100
Yours very respt.
Louis C. Canora
