Sort: Oldest first
The Azores or Western Islands are said to afford one of the best examples of a mild, humid, equable climate, to be met with in the northern hemisphere. It is slightly colder and moister than that of Madeira, but even more equable. Sir James Clark thinks, that a change from the Azores to Madeira, and thence to Teneriffe-one of the Canaries-would prove more beneficial to the phthisical valetudinarian than a residence during the whole winter in any one of those islands.
