A Professional Man’s Estimate of Camden
We supplement the appreciative letters of Lyman Abbott and Professor Genung, by one from Dr. F. Forchheimer, a well-known specialist of Cincinnati, who with his family spent the summer of 1899 at the “Anchorage” cottage. His estimate of Camden may interest those who are looking for a summer home.
Cincinnati, Ohio, Dec. 26, 1899.
It is with great pleasure that I write concerning our sojourn at Camden last summer. We have wandered much during our summer vacations, but never have we found a place which has benefitted us so much as Camden. The fine air, the beautiful scenery, the wonderful combinations of mountains with ocean, and, above all, the excellent sanitary conditions, make it a place that must be lived in to be appreciated. To those of us who live inland, exemption from summer heat is sufficient inducement to make Camden an abiding place in the summer. If added to all these excellences there is found every necessity to creature comfort, all is said that can be said in favor or a place.
Yours very truly,
