of flannel next the ikin, hating himieif
experienced great benefit from it, before
he had any idea of difcovering the pby
fical caufc- " I am atloniihed (fays he)
that cuitom (hould aot hare prevailed
, more univerfally ; I am confident it
would prevent a multitude of difeafes,
and I know no greater luxury than the
comlfoi table fenfation which refults from
wearing it. It is a miflalpen nQtion that
it is too warm a clothing for the fuin

in the hotteQ. feafons of the year and ne
ver found theTeait inconvenience from
it. (it is the warm bath of perfpiration
confined bv a lineri ikirt, jret with fweat,
which renders the fummer heats of fouth
ern climaxes fo iniupportable but flan
nel promotes perfpiration, and favours
evaporation, and evaporation, as is well
known, prodmces pofitive coU."
