This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

In doing so, however, I hope that nothing I have said may tend to prejudice intending travellers, against Tangier. Some little disagreeables and inconveniences are to be encountered there, no doubt; but they are nothing but what any person may easily overcome, and the counterbalancing advantages are great. The climate in general is delightful, bright and bracing, with no extremes of cold or heat. From about the beginning of May the sun becomes very powerful, necessitating the adoption of white or light coloured clothing, with white straw hats and puggarees for head gear. But the sea breezes always temper the heat, so that little or no inconvenience is felt from it indoors, and even without, quite thick materials--though light coloured--may be worn with comfort. On account of this equability of temperature, Tangier is becoming very favourably known as a resort for invalids, particularly for those affected by the various forms of chest complaints for which our 2 A English winter climate is so unsuited. Living is cheap, and the food, though not very good, is equally far from being bad, and probably much better than can be obtained in many expensive continental towns, frequented by English health-seekers. Amusements, properly so called, certainly are scarce, but there is plenty in the country and the people to interest and entertain all but lovers of mere conventional "pleasures," so called; and as there are always a number of English and Americans at the different hotels, most of whom are generally inclined to be friendly...
