Dr. Edwards says in the preface, "I have long felt that an impartial account of Southern California, devoid of the fulsome praise of guide books and land office advertisements, would be of interest and help to a large class of health seekers. If invalids would bear in mind that no climate is perfect, much diappointment would be saved. Again, if physicians would explain to their patients the absolute necessity of coming earlier in their disease, much suffering could be avoided."
Dr. Edwards has given his conclusions after a residence of eight years and Miss Harraden after two and one-half years' sojourn.
The style of the book is pleasant and the conclusions, we doubt not, are accurate. The work will be of good service in teaching the valetudinarian what to expect from the Southern Californian climate.
