Doctors Copeland and Hill report New York is not threatened by influenza. The
Spanish variant is nothing new, and is a mild version of the 1889 grippe, and no new cases have been reported to Hubbard at the board of health. WM Wilkerson is tarred and feathered in Vicksburg, Mississippi for expressing his support for Germany.
