Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Including the leafing, flowering, and fruiting of a few standard plants
in the Royal Society's Gardens during the month of May.
In many respects the weather this month was a great improvement upon
that of April, and the reduction of infantile mortality thereby effected, was
considerable, on the other hand, some of the meteorological phenomena were
very inimical to invalids, and the deaths of adults consequently much more
numerous, so that the total mortality was still greatly above the May average
of the previous seven years.
