    Notes: “Physicians attending yellow fever in Baltimore, 1819-20, were: Allender (Jos.); Alexander (Ashton); Baker (Sam.); Brevitt (Jos.); Clark (M.D.); Clendinen (Wm. Haslett and Alexander); Diffenderfer (Mich.); Dunan (L.M.); Dorsey (Robt. E.); Dorsey (Henry); Ealer (Peter); Elbert; Gillingham (Ezra); Giraud (J.J.); Hall (R.W.); Henderson (Josiah); Jennings (Sam.

L.); Caldwell (J.B.); Readell.

    Of the noble exertions of these men the Mayor says: ‘In adverting to this calamity I should commit an act of injustice were I to omit to notice the humane and magnanimous exertions of those medical gentlemen residing in or near the vicinity of the infected district, and those who extended their assistance when the disease had attained its greatest extent and malignity; some time previous to which period, the more wealthy of our citizens and their families from within the district had removed, and very few remained except those who, by their deprivation of their means of support or from extreme indigence were able to afford but little prospect to the physician of pecuniary renumeration, equal to that which he might actually be called upon to expend from his own means on this account. They still perservered and attended indiscriminately all, the rich and poor, suffering no consideration to deter them from the indulgence of their philanthropic feelings. As the cases multiplied the calls upon them increased, and their natural rest was destroyed and their anxieties strained to such a pitch that their own lives appeared likely to become a sacrifice to their disinterested zeal.’ (Mayor Johnson’s Rep. In Doc. of this Ep., pp. 179-80).”
