Surgeon General Blue's telegraphic survey uncovers how widespread influenza is among the armed forces: a sharp outbreak in Mobile, Alabama some four weeks ago, simultaneously in Newport News, Virginia a steamer arrived with an entire crew prostrate, and at Philadelphia, Boston and New York many recent reports. The outbreak is characterized by rapid onset.
