Not illustrated. 1854 edition. Excerpt: ...predisposition is complicated with scrofula or chlorosis. In such cases the comparative dryness and the greater electricity of the atmosphere would be productive of the best effects in rectifying the disordered condition of the blood, whereas by sojourning at Rome, Pau, or any other relatively humid locality, where the air is but little agitated by wind, and where the sun's influence is less constantly experienced, there would be much less probability of the predisposition being removed, and of such patients being restored to health. Those persons predisposed to, or labouring under pulmonary disease, ought not, however, to remain at Nice, or, at least, in the parts on the shore exposed to the action of the winds during the spring months, when, as we have seen, the atmospheric variations--a hot sun not unfrequently prevailing, or alternating with a cold wind--are at times great and frequent. In generalthe weather in November, December, and January, is, for the most part, fine and warm, with the exception of an occasional windy o rainy day; and at this time, when the air passages are not very susceptible to cold, one or other of the localities fronting the sea might be chosen. The Ponchettes, as has been observed, is the warmest of these situations, being fully exposed to the south and west, and completely sheltered from the north and east. There is no very great difference of temperature between the other parts most frequented by visitors, though some are more exposed to the wind than others. Thus, the Boulevard du Midi, which is close to the sea, would not be so good a situation as the Ponchettes on the approach of spring, though being in a measure sheltered from the east by the castle hill, it is perhaps less prejudicially affected by winds more
