Excerpt from The Half-Yearly Abstract of the Medical Sciences, Vol. 25: Being a Practical and Analytical Digest of the Contents of the Principal British and Continental Medical Works Published in the Preceding Six Months; January-June, 1857
The ghange from autumn to winter, in 1854, was as sudden as that from winter to a ring. This change depresses even more than that exhilarates, in consequence of t e continued rains rather than of severe cold attending its commencement. The sudden mutations of temperature to which the climate of the Crimea is liable in the winter months, were more hurtful to the health of our forces than any other of the climatic conditions. These changes of heat and cold were the consequences of the shillings of the winds from the northerly and southerly direction, or vice versa. A fall of 30 Fahr., within a few hours, was by no means an unfrequent occurrence.
