A Case of Leprosy.
Boston, December 17.—A case, it is believed, of genuine leprosy has been developed in the Almshouse at Salem. Charles Derby is the victim, who arrived from San Francisco a week ago. Derby is well educated, and for some years was chief botanist at Honolulu to Queen Emma. He has been isolated and his clothing burned.
