CHARLES C. PLOWDEN
35 South Street
11 Oct. 1872
Encloses a 'few words' of opinion sought on the progress of Indian Sanitary work; the strong and living interest taken by the authorities in India in improving the conditions; traces the decline of fatal diseases and of Fetish worship, and the decrease of infant mortality in Europeans; considers that 'although a little unnecessary theory crops up now and then', there is growing evidence that the enormous Indian problems are being tackled in a practical way; an annual summary of works done is most required; repeats emphatically that the Government of India is well served by its Officers and comments on the increasing interest shown by the Native Population.
