The National Vaccine Institution. To THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STYTES. AN erroneous idea has been taken up, in consequence of the repeal of the law rela- ti\ e to vaccination ; and manv persons have seen induced to believe, that this Institution was thereby broken up and abandoned. BCT THIS is ^OT THE CASE. The law which as been repealed, never granted any mo- icy, or made any other provision to encour- £Te T .accination, except to permit all letters to and from me on the subject, to be carried ree of postage. It must be evident, then, that the Vaccine Institution can be continued as well without the aid of this law, as with it. The repeal of this law,indeed,rcnders an Institu- ii of this kind doubly necessary ; and clearly proves that the public good requires t should be permanently fixed upon some ·Hire foundation. ]t should not be liable to l A t ifcJ %S\S\J W i l x_ W I .
