Excerpt from On East and North-East Winds: The Nature, Treatment, and Prevention of Their Suffocative Effects; Embracing Also the Subjects of Diet and Digestion, Their Errors and Penalties
The consciousness of having fellow-sufferers in distress, softens down many of the asperities of human miseries. If one victim escapes, - expectant hope is awakened, and the means of his rescue become deeply interesting and consoling.
The Author, from a severe cold taken whilst pursuing his arduous vocations, endured the afflictions depicted in the following pages. By experiments, investigations, and observations, extending over many months, he arrived at the conclusions and remedies detailed in this book, and not only effected a permanent cure in himself, but from three years' subsequent experience, he confidently places his views and therapeutic measures in the hands of the public.
The Author much regrets that the few leisure hours at his command have prevented his bestowing as much time on this work as he could have wished. He can only tender his best apologies to the public, and solicit the kind consideration of the critical reader.
