I have endeavoured to set forth, as they appeared to me, all those conditions leading up to and prevalent during the famine season, together with the methods adopted to deal with the situations Which arose during these months. The practical working out of the Indian Famine Code will no doubt result in many alterations being made from time to time. In the course of my critical examination I have suggested a few such alterations. Again, in describing the diseases and epidemics I have noted chiefly those points where the disease has been modified or changed by the famine conditions existing, or where the symptoms differed to some extent from those occurring Burin ordinary times.Again while direct evidence of famine is seen in such conditions as Debility, and Famine Diarrhoea, indirect evidence is given by the modification in the symptoms of the other diseases note., and in the prevalence of so many epidemics within the famine period.
