Spotted Fever

This disease is still in the south eastern part of this county. Mr. Kyte, three days since informed us of eleven deaths there within the last six or eight days, and of some other cases, that would probably prove fatal. The following is a list of deaths by this disease which he gave us.

Mrs. Robert Moyers, Mrs. Wm. McCoy, Mrs. J. Headly and child, Mr. Sanders, for of John McCoy’s children, tow of McCartney’s and Mr. Kirby’s wife.

We have hears of no cases in other parts of the county.
