Enumerator's Remarks: Of the above number of deaths from first to the sixth inclusive occurred in the Twelfth Civil District and from seven to 14 inclusive occurred in the Eighth. I have taken special pain to acquire after the disease or cause of death. I failed to get to see Doctors A. A. Caldwell and C. C. Ellis, but the physicians that I did see said all the cases are correctly stated they having a knowledge of the same. Sorry to say that by ascendant [accident?] which was unavoidable my other death schedule got soiled.
