Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Medical Notes in Egypt

Egypt is a narrow green ribbon of land, with the Nile, not as broad as the Missouri River, ¿owing through it, and endless stretches of desert on either side. These thousands of Square miles of barren dry sand rob the air of most of its moisture, dissipate clouds and prevent rains, and completely sterilize the atmosphere of pestiferous germs.

The climate of the Delta is not treated in this article, because no part of it can be considered a health-re sort for Americans or Europeans (many residents of Egypt spend their summers at Ramleh or Alexandria), and because it differs materially from the rest of Egypt. For instance, Cairo, which lies at the upper angle of the Delta, has twelve rainy days in the year, while at its other extremity, Damietta and Alexandria, rain is still more frequent.

Interesting and charming as Cairo is to most peo ple, it is not here that the invalid should take up his winter residence, although he may make it his head quarters from which to depart on his various excur sions. The general sewer system of Cairo is in very bad condition, but that of most of the hotels is good. The mortality of Cairo is extraordinary, almost equal to that of Madras. The Cairo death-rate is 46 in Madras, 48; Paris and Berlin, Lon don, In winter one may spend some very miserable, cold, damp days in Cairo, for the hotels are rarely provided with means of heating the rooms, and few of them have a sufficiency of chambers with a southern exposure. I experienced about Christmas time, last year, four most uncomfortable rainy and cold days in succession in Cairo, and suffered more from it than one winter month in Florence, some years ago, treasured up as one of my bitterest memo ries of disillusion in sunny Italy.

Season. - The season for tourist or invalid is the seven months from October to April, inclusive, but one may remain through May without discomfort.

The other months are objectionable because of the heat and the inundation Of the Nile.
