Excerpt from Basle as a Residence

Basle, thanks to its favorable situation, to its State institutions, and to the charmmg characteristics of its inhabitants, exercises a powerful fascination not only on those in search of work, but also on those who, having retired from the bustle of an active life, wish to enjoy their well-earned leisure in security and peace. To these our City offers many an advantage and many a boon, that are sought for in vain elsewhere. A healthy and mild climate, pleasant and varied environs, model sanitary arrangements, favorable conditions of life, a wise system of taxation, a teeming intellectual intercourse; these are advantages which make it clear why our City is ever more sought after by those who wish to enjoy their leisure.

Wherefore constant are the inquiries at the Gene ral Inquiry Office as to actual conditions of living and as to rents and expenses. Thus arose the necessity of answering in printed form, the many and varlous inquiries of this kind. This task was entrusted to a committee of well qualified experts, the result of whose labour is to be found in this booklet Basle as a Residence which may now go out into the world to make many friends for our City.
