United States National Archives and Records Administration micropublication T655, roll 28.

Notes from District No. 2 pages:
The only disease which has prevailed to any extent in County and City is Diptheria or putrid sore throat, generally fatal particularly among children. The water soil and rock are fairly limestone. The timber walnut and hackberry, white hickory and burr oak interspersed here and there with a thrifty growth of sugar trees, white ash  &c &c &c. Lime is the greatest natural for them, no other facts worth stating  under this head.
