During a smallpox epidemic, the House of Assembly passes a resolution to reserve £500 for the prevention of further spread of the disease. A circular is sent to rural physicians advising them that they would be compensated for the vaccination of poor persons. Vaccination of some Mi’kmaq people is carried out in Mahone Bay and is paid for by the Colony.
