PREFACE

It has been represented to the author that the publication of a few extracts from his larger works might meet the wants of persons living in remote places in the Colonies or elsewhere, by furnishing them with correct principles of sanitation. The following pages have accordingly been taken from The Milroy Lectures' and The Dwelling-house,' as containing matter which is applicable to camp and colonial sanitation.
