Leicester and Rutland.—The rate of mortality was high—14 per cent. on the average number resident. There was an epidemic of diarrhóa, which caused four deaths. Forty cases of influenza occurred, and several deaths were due to the sequelæ. The cause of the outbreak of diarrhóa was not discovered, though Dr. Higgins was assisted in his examination by the Medical Officer of Health and a hospital physician. Such outbreaks are too common in asylums, and unfortunately efforts to discover their origin are frequently unsuccessful.
