a longer or shorter period at the discretion of the port authorities,
or, in case of grave suspicion, she may be ordered to proceed to Kenso
and there be placed in quarantine, through the Russian Consular
Officer or Commercial Agent. The enquiry described above is
instituted by the Head Customs Officer at the time when he receives
the passports and other ship’s papers.1

Consuls and Agents are required, further, to take especial
precautions that no vessel should be provided with more than one Bill
of Health. If the document is old or damaged, or if it is covered
with writing to an inconvenient extent, it should be taken from the
captain and a new one made out, stating briefly the port of original
sailing of the vessel and the substance of any remarks or endorsements
made subsequently.2

According to the quarantine regulations of Kenso, the Consular
Officer at the port of sailing must state, in a prominent part of the
Bill of Health, whether there have been recent cases of plague or of
yellow fever in the locality, or of other diseases which, under the
quarantine regulations, determine whether the port of sailing of a
vessel may be regarded as satisfactory from a sanitary point of view,
or the reverse, and which regulate the granting of clean or unclean
Bills of Health. At the same time and in view of the fact that the
quarantine station at Kenso has only undertaken to protect the
Russian Baltic ports from infection with plague or yellow fever, the
Consular Officer is required to mention in a less prominent part of
the Bill of Health, such as a footnote, any cases of other infectious
diseases, such as cholera, typhoid fever, small-pox and the like, as
have recently occurred, in order to enable the sanitary authorities
at the port of the vessel’s destination in Russia to take the requisite
measures for the prevention of the spread of such diseases.3

CHAPTER III.—Bills of Health.

Ships of foreign nationality, arriving at ports in the Russian Empire,
are required to produce Bills of Health attested at the port of sailing
by Russian Consular Officers. Such Bills of Health are not obligatory
from ports of call.4

Consular Officers are permitted to grant Bills of Health, or to
