Small pox inoculations in Carlow

As the success of the Suttonian Art of Inoculation depends principally on the Efficacy of Medicines, the following Certificates are re-published from the Dublin Papers, only to convince the Public, that the Suttonian Artists can inoculate with the utmost Safety at any Season of the Year.

WE the several principal Inhabitants of the County of Carlow, do Certify, in Justice to MR. Houlton, that he has Inoculated within the last four Months, our Children and above Six Hundred other Persons whom he conducted through the Small Pox, with that Safety, Singularity and Dispatch which justly characterize the Suttonian Art of Inoculation. At the same Time, we thank the above Gentleman for his great Charity to the Poor of this County, Three Hundred of whom he Inoculated gratis.
