Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The H. M. M. B. A. In California What I do contend for about California is That, when all these disagreeable features are taken into the account at their greatest measure of annoyance, we still possess such an abundance of glorious climate, entrancing and majestic scenes, delightful resorts, health ful surroundings, business advantages, and other good things, that one may travel far and wide, and for many years, ere he finds another region which is so desirable for pleasure, health, travel, and residence. And if, in any way, these pages add to the good of the Golden State, by inducing travel, immigration, or capital hither, and give pleasure to those for whom they were written, viz. My fellow-members of the H. M. M. B. A. And the charming ladies of their families, their purpose will be abundantly accomplished. In regard to the hotel men and women and their hotels, there are two reasons why nothing but good has been said: First, they are good; and, second, if there are - as I doubt not there are - poor hotels and poorer hotel men and women in California, I simply have not mentioned them. Hence, it being given to me to describe only the good, I could use none but good words in my descriptions. And, dear reader, were I writing about you and your hotel, could I write in any other way? I shall be excused, doubtless, if I here state that, while Ihave received much and valuable aid from a variety of sources, the book is my own work and financial venture. no associa tion, no hotel, no other person than myself is responsible for a word that is here written. Whatever censure or praise the book may receive, I alone am responsible for all it contains. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
