In thus raiblingly presenting to the attention df tltef
profession and invalid tourist the claims of Sail Antonio and the tributary country as a
health resort for throat and lung invalids, I am not unmindful of the responsibility
involved. And appreciating fully that responsibility, I have endeavored to treat the subject

with confidence I abide the verdict of the medical profession and of the people to wholioii
this little iiionograpih miiay come.
