S tleir turn at his health, until it was far fromii perfect. A residence
S.r i f a few months in Sai AltOllnio, ad a few lOllths' hIllting trip inI
the hills to the northwest, sufficed to start hin on the road to health,
4 which was wholly regained, and has been enjoyed from that day
x Ato this. This experience is but in keeping vith hundreds upon
hundreds of otlicrs who are living monuments to the curative virtues of the salubrious atmios-
phliere of San Antonio and vicinity.
While it is true that all over Western Texas are to be found men and women now strong
and well, who seem to have been snatched from the very jaws of death, when apparently
hopelessly ill of advanced phthisis, many of them having gone there in bed-ridden conditions,
and while from this it might appear that even the most desperate cases would be justified in
making a trial of climatic change, since only certain death awaits them at home, yet I do not
feel that it would be in the least just or proper to urge the profession to prescribe a removal
to the climate of San Antonio for other than coInnrm('llcig, cases ofj tllhl/sis, or for those pre-
disposed by family history to this disease. Rarely do we learn of a patient, who has gone
there early, or when just entering upon a decline, but that prolongation of life, at least,
and in general, recovery lhas occurred, if the climate has been tested for a reasonable length
Here’s what’s next.
