Yellow Fever Scare

September, 1873 - Three sailors aboard the Schooner Julius Walsh sick with Yellow Fever. Two of the men were quarantined before the ship docked at Red Hook's Union Stores but a third man did not show symptoms until after the ship arrived in port.

THE YELLOW FEVER SCARE.
The Health Officer's opinion that the cases of alleged
yellow fever, upon the Schooner Julius Walsh, now lying
at the Union Stores, were cases of intermittent fever,
is fully sustained. There were three men sick
with the disease upon the vessel, but the one who died
upon the schooner was not taken sick until after her
arrival to port. The other two cases were taken off at
Quarantine.
