On Thursday, I stirred up a big stink in Atlanta from July 1864. That wasn’t the only one:
COMPLAINTS.–Some of the inmates of the Gate City Hospital complain that an old building near the hospital is filled with hides, which omit an intolerable stench, permeating and infecting the atmosphere of the hospital, to the detriment of its inmates. Will not the authorities have the nuisance abated?
