Travelling Man

3 Aug

Two great menaces to the traveling man’s health, particularly in tropical countries, are cocktails and the local water supply. The habit of frequent indulgence in cocktails or whisky is a very common one among Americans, Britishers and other foreigners residing in the tropics, and this has spread to some degree among the natives themselves. Though it is sometimes difficult, the traveling man who really desires to safeguard his health will do well to avoid liquors.

— Paul R. Mahony, The Export Salesman (New York: Business Training Corporation, 1916), pp. 88-9.
