The following census of the flora of Deal Island, in Kent's
Group, was laid on the table by Mr. Justice Dobson, who
had enlisted the services of the Superintendent of the Lighthouse
on the Island, Mr. Johnstone, to collect and send him
specimens of all plants growing there. These were forwarded
to Sir F. Von Mueller, who prepared the census.
