Description

Excerpt from The Uses and Abuses of Air, Vol. 1 of 2: Showing Its Influence in Sustaining Life, and Producing Disease; With Remarks on the Ventilation of Houses But when was a deficient supply of air ever known, except through the agency of man himself, in his folly and ignorance? Providence has furnished us with an ocean of it, fifty miles deep, and placed us at the bottom, where its pressure enables us to obtain it in exhaustless profusion, and perfect purity. By the exercise of a cer tain corporeal function, which is carried on without our notice or aid, it flows, surely and steadily, deep into the body; and so arranged are the functions, that it requires more than one's ordinary physical strength, permanently to arrest its flowing in.
