Excerpt from The Mineral Springs of Vichy: A Sketch of Their Chemical and Physical Characters, and of Their Chemical and Physical Characters, and of Their Efficacy in the Treatment of Various Diseases; Written After a Rapid Excursion From Kissingen, in the Summer of 1858 Such occasions, however, had become so frequent of late, in consequence of the well-known fact of my having extensively written on foreign as well as English mineral waters, and of my annually visiting a particular conti. Nental Spa, Kissingen, that I resolved to remain no longer in such a state of ignorance, and determined to make myself personally acquainted with all that related to Vichy and its various resources. I considered that in this manner I might be able to present to invalids, de sirons to avail themselves of those resources, something like a practical guide, in which they might safely confide, as coming from a medical authority long conversant with the whole question of the hy dromin eral treatment of diseases. Whether I have succeeded in my object, I leave those practically conversant with it to determine.
