Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Includes the leafing, flowering, and fruiting of a few standard plants
in the Royal Society's Gardens during the month of June 1866.
The very abnormal meteorological phenomena of the present June were
attended with a very great mortality of aged people, one half of the total number
of deaths being at ages ranging from 60 to 89 years. No year's June on record
had anything near so large a proportion of senile deaths.
