In this interesting and important paper, Dr. Mott concludes from his researches that the evidence adduced does not support the contention that infection is one of the strongest causative elements in the prevalence of tuberculosis in the London County Asylums. Still less does it support the view that the causes of tuberculosis inhere in the asylums themselves, and not in the character of the patients sent to them. Ward incidence is not comparable with that shown by dysentery. If tuberculosis is communicable, it cannot be regarded as an infectious disease in the same sense as dysentery, smallpox, scarlet fever, etc.
