During the mastic harvest, the people from the adjacent towns of the island, flock together in order to enjoy the spectacle of the exuding mastic, which covers the trees, resembling most beautiful and brilliant pearls, and which glitters in the sun with all the beauteous colours of the rainbow. Besides this inducement, many go in order to enjoy the air, impregnated with the fragrance of the mastic, and which is said to be of the greatest service to persons suffering from asthma, or other pulmonary complaints.-
