TO T2I, PEOPLE 0OP SAN FPbAMC'TI300:
The epidemic of inflenza is on the iwane. But it has not yet passed.
There is still much acute suffering in our city and great~ need of
volunteer help for those who can not help2 themselves. Men and vgoaen;ig
and fre~e for a f ew days tosezrve in the Wnae of pity and for the public good
are as~ked to come forward and offer themselves for service in the homes of
influenza and -)neumonia 'victims.
There is somie danger irn this service. It is not as groat, by no.eans a' gr et' as may be generally supposed. Faithfully co stt weaxing
of thZe:mask gives almost, if not quite, positive protection.
The requirements upon those who volunteer are robust health, good
comion sense, and a will to serve.
I a advised of the need of those volunteers by the Boars c f Public
Bealth v ich has so skillfully directed the fight against use epide iic.
The authorities of the Red Cross second the call of the Boer d of Has2h.
Therefore, I, as M:ayor, respectfully call for such volunteers, men an d
womien, as desire to ":f fer their services for the care of influenza )m:.tient s
in' the homes of -those pat-ients and request, them to report for duty at the
special Influenza Headquarters of the Red Cross, at 1030 Mission st reet.
