This Hotel, situated at NASSAU,
NEW PROVIDENCE, BAHAMAS, was built by the Colonial Government, and it a handsome
three-story building, erected on an elevation a few minutes' walk from the
shore, and commanding a fine view of the ocean, harbor, and town of Nassau.
Surrounding the Hotel is a piazza
ten feet wide, from which the inmates can at all times enjoy the gentle,
cooling, easterly trade winds. INVALIDS unable to bear much fatigue will have a
promenade extending one thousand feet, without leaving the building. All of the
TROPICAL FRUITS grow in great abundance, and are in season the entire winter.
But little rain falls from the
month of October to the first of June. THIS IS CONSIDERED THE PECULIAR SEASON
FOR INVALIDS, though they can reside the entire year with comfort and safety.
The roads are macadamized, and kept in good order, A most BEAUTIFUL DRIVE,
extends for twelve miles along the sea shore. In fact, every thing combines to
make it a pleasant home for the robust as well as for the invalid.
The Lessee of the Hotel has
recently secured the services of Mr. James Carroll, late of the "NEW YORK
HOTEL," who will have the entire superintendence, and is determined to do all in
his power to minister to the wants and comforts of his guests.
The CULINARY and other
departments shall be well supplied, the cooks the best obtainable, and the
servants attentive and unobtrusive.
