Extracts from the Gazette, 1731
Printed in The Pennsylvania Gazette, July 8, 1731.

The Small-pox has now quite left this City. The Number of those that died here of that Distemper, is exactly 288, and no more. 64 of the Number were Negroes; If these may be valued one with another at £30 per Head, the Loss to the City in that Article is near £2000.
