Description

Excerpt from Medical Communications of the Massachusetts Medical Society, 1848, Vol. 7: With an Appendix, Containing the Proceedings of the Society During the latter part of spring, the whole of sum mer, and the early part of autumn, the climate here is delightful; and a summer residence upon our moun tains might be made more salubrious and pleasant for the invalid, with affections of the lungs, than at our most celebrated watering-places, or even at the ther mal springs in Virginia. I often recommend such retreats to the consumptive from our cities, and I have seen much amendment in such cases from inhaling the pure air of the Hoosac and its Spurs. Frosts usually occur here about the middle of September, and continue in some parts of the county till the middle of May. They are rarely, however, severe in either of these 'months. Winter rarely com mences with severity before the middle of December, and'our snow usually leaves us about the middle of March. I have, however, known snow to fall on the last week in November, and to lie on the ground till the middle of April. Sleighs have run here in six successive months. This, however, is a rare occur rence. More frequently we do not have three months of good sleighing in the course of a year. I have known people cross Deerfield river upon the ice for six months in succession, - while, generally, we cannot cross it in this way more than two months in the year. The subjoined table will Show the quantity of snow which has fallen In 19 years in Deerfield. Pro bably more has fallen upon our western mountams. (see Note B.)
