Plague Threatens East End
"Late this afternoon the bodies of two unidentified men were discovered in its basement by the landlord of a tenement building at 14 Bridge Street, E. Eyewitnesses at the scene claimed, before the premises were closed by the police, that the deceased bore the signs of the Black Death - bubonic plague. Scotland Yard have appointed Insp. Athelney Jones in charge of the case. He urged the local populace to "remain calm," since, "everything is under control."
The plague occurs occasionally in London as infected individuals arrive, but our vigilant medical practitioners give this dread disease no chance of establishment. Several decades ago an entire ship docking at Whitby proved to be victimized by plague."
