THE SUMMER CLIMATE THE BEST.
While the wintry season is, naturally, most to be avoided in the North and East, and
while it is in this season that the emigration of invalids to the health resorts of the South takes
place, and while, further, the Winters of Southwest Texas are but as the Fall weather of the
North, yet the season of the year in which pulmonic invalids derive the greatest benefit in that
climate is during the long, dry and extremely healthy Summers. The air is so uniformly pure,
warm and dry that the very best effects obtainable are to be had at that season. The nights
are always pleasant and in the hilly country the days are never over-warm. For months it is
not necessary to close the doors and windows of one's sleeping apartments, and yet it is never
inconveniently warm among the hills; and if it is desired to do more than climate patchwork
with oases going to that sanitarium, the Summer season, as well as the Winter months, should
certainly be taken advantage of. The climate of San Antonio is pre-eminently an all-the-year-
round climate. Invalids should go to stay long enough to b)e thoroughly cured, and to this end
no better method can he adopted than to go prepared to make it a home for months, years, or
for a lifetime, as necessity demands.
