The opportunity for Making the observations embodied in this thesis occurred during my nine months term of office as resident medical officer at Dagenham Small Pox Hospital (March - December 1902) . The hospital contained five hundred beds and provided accommodation for patients from West Haan and certain rural districts within a radius of fifteen miles of the hospital. Although I had complete inside contro the hospital was under the supervision of the Medical Superintendent (Dr. Biernacki) of the West Ham Fever Hospital who resided some seven miles away. The clinical material was ample for a much more extended study than the present one;but pressure of work under unfavourable epidemic conditions rendered this impossible. The paper consists of four parts. The first part deals with the treatment of Small pox by Salol. The second part is a clinical study of thirty six cases of hoemorrhagic small pox. The third part deals with some of the relations of vaccination and small pox, and the last part is concerned with the diagnosis of small pox,with special reference to the diseases that were erroneously diagnosed as such.
