- n. cowpox.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The young Ladies of the School, as well as others have been vaccinated with success, and it is with satisfaction we can assure the public in general, not only that not the least sign or danger of the Small-pox now exists; but also, that on this occasion we have proved, that the genuine kine-pox, when the disease is in the regular form, is a sure preservative against the contagion of the Small-pox.
Carry with you some matter of the kine-pox; inform those of them with whom you may be of its efficacy as a preservative from the small-pox, and instruct and encourage them in the use of it.
