Excerpt from The State of Mississippi: Resources, Condition and Wants; Compiled and Arranged by Order of the State Board of Immigration and Agriculture

Its territory extends north from the sea coast, about five degrees, and embraces a varied temperature. The summers are long and warm, but rarely reach the extreme heat felt in the North, East and Northwest. The evenings and nights are pleasantly cool in consequence of never-failing breezes from the Gulf. The winters are short and mild. In the extreme northern part of the State ice is seldom seen more than one inch thick, and in the southern part, killing frosts are very rare.

The Rev. Dr. Johnson, makes the following statement:

"I was born and reared in Western North Carolina, on the table lands of the Blue Ridge. I came to Mississippi in 1849, and have lived here ever since. In have enjoyed almost uninterrupted good health. I have never had a chill, or an attack of any disease that I might not have had anywhere else. I have worked by day and night, indoors and outdoors. I have traveled extensively over the State at every season of the year, especial in the summer, and my general health has been as good as if had been breathing mountain air. My family, nine in number, suffer no inconvenience from the climate. My children are as robust, healthy and active as any family of children yon will find in the Northwest. I have had under my control, for eleven years past, a large number of young persons, two hundred or more, and over one hundred under may own roof for several years. They have come from North Carolina Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas, and their health has been as good as similar collections of young persons in Northern States. During the time there have been only four deaths."

General West, in his report on the State of Mississippi in 1876, says:

"The climate of Mississippi is 'the happy medium,' where the products of the North and South meet, grow and mature in harmony with the necessities and many of the luxuries of life. No country is more regularly irrigated by rain falls, or better supplied with aqueous vapor than Mississippi. (See p. 7.) The moisture and humidity so necessary to the life and growth of vegetation are borne from the warm bosom of the Gulf stream, and from various rivers, and diffused throughout her borders. Her lands are so varied in their physical formation, location and production, as to suit all classes and conditions of society."
