Smallpox in an Old Suit of Clothes
Special to the Post
Richmond, Va., March 7.- A fully developed case of smallpox is reported from Lanexa, a station on the Peninsula division of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway, about thirty miles from Richmond. Henry Jackson is the patient and Dr. John Turner is the physician attending him. Jackson received a second-hand suit of clothes from New York, and is thought to have contracted the disease through that medium. Dr. Oppenheimer, president of the city board of health, will investigate the matter to-morrow.
