    Notes: “Dr. James Smith notifies the public that although the act of 1809 has expired, he is still willing to furnish vaccine gratuitously to all. Dr. James Smith through his liberality furnished the City Hospital with a cabinet of wax anatomical models at a cost of $20,000. These models, made by Dr. Chiappi, embraced a male and female gifure, life size, the parts of which were separable, showin the internal organization, the gravid uterus, & c. After the death of Drs. C. and John P. Mackenzie (to whom they were given by Dr. J. Smyth) they were deposited for exhibition and sale in Peale’s Museum and ultimately destroyed by the burning of the Museum (Dr. J.S. Mackenzie’s statement to the writer.)'”
