Lettering note

Translation of lettering: Cholera swaddles itself in the nest that is dirt and breeds in it. Drink ye not unboiled water nor use dirty drinking cups. Eat ye not market grub, it is prepared and stored in dirty conditions. Pollute ye not water sources: polluted water carries infection. Kill ye flies: they transmit cholera through food and drink from the ill to the healthy
