Title
Observations addressed to the public in general on the cow-pox :  shewing that it originates in scrophula, commonly called the evil : illustrated with cases to prove that it is no security against the small-pox : also pointing out the dreadful consequences of this new disease, so recently, and rashly, introduced into the human constitution : to which are added observations on the small-pox inoculation, proving it to be more beneficial to society than the vaccine   / by R. Squirrell.
