Barbados is one of the most salubrious places in the world ; the great extremes of from hot to cold , such as is experienced in many winter resorts, as in Florida, Italy and the south of France, being here unknown, its climate is especially adapted to make it an agreeable and advantageous winter residence for those afflicted with lung and throat trouble , who have to spend that season of the year out of England or the United States.
