Excerpt from Aiken, South Carolina: A Description of the Climate, Soils, and the Nature of the Products in the Vicinity of Aiken, S. C., Especially Fruit, Cereals, Cotton, Corn, &C., Including Extracts From Letters of Distinguished Visitors, Correspondents, Action of Town Councils InvitingPerhaps no part of the South has attracted so much attention during the past three years as has Aiken, S. C. The fine climate, the balmy air, the clearness of the atmosphere, its wonderful effects upon invalids afflicted not only with diseases of a pulmonary character, but those of an asthenic nature, requiring a tonic bracing climate the opposite to that which is generally obtained in low latitudes, and the peculiar surroundings of the place, as more particularly referred to hereafter, have attracted the attention of many individuals who have remained here for a longer or shorter period. Quite a number of northern families have bought farms or town residences here, and, after a residence of months, are so well pleased that they urge their friends and acquaintances to locate here, like themselves, permanently.With a view of calling attention to the advantages of Aiken and its climate, the following extracts from published letters, with our own comments.and explanations, is herewith given to the public:Extracts from Thurlow Weed’s letters to the New York “Commercial Advertiser.”Aiken, Jan. 22, 1868.We find in the climate of Aiken all the advantages we hoped for. In this respect there was nothing of exaggeration in the many favorable representations we had heard and read. In climate, the January of Aiken resembles the October of New York – it is dry and clear. We walk morning, afternoon and evening without overcoats. Ladies enjoy croquet in costumes suitable for May on the North River. Violets are is full bloom. Now, as heretofore, there are many northern citizens passing the winter here, among whom are Hugh Maxwell, George H. Andrews, of New York, and General Dimick, of the United States army. Mr. Maxwell came here for the benefit of his own health, which is fully re-established. The son of Mr. Andrews, who was dangerously ill, is improving.The walks and drives in and about Aiken are very pleasant.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
