Mathew Carey, a renowned early American publisher, is best-remembered for printing some of the most important American documents and speeches. However, at the height of the Yellow Fever epidemic in 1793 Philadelphia, Carey wrote an important treatise recounting the events noting the major changes to the city of Philadelphia.

 

One particularly interesting first-hand account of the epidemic according to Carey:

“People hastily shifted their course at the sight of a hearse coming towards them. Many never walked on the footpath, but went into the middle of the streets, to avoid being infected in passing by houses wherein people had died.”
