Abstract

The first part of the volume contains detailed medical case notes taken by Dr GF Story, describing the symptoms and treatment of convicts at the Waterloo Point and Rocky Hills Convict Stations (East Coast Tasmania), as well as private patients. The volume includes an account of the first vaccinations conducted in the Great Swan Port district in 1835. Story records the recurrence of diseases in 1835 and 1839, and includes a table of rainfall for 1831-1832 (p.427). An index follows the medical notes at the back of the volume. Then, from the back of the volume and in reverse, is a list of medicines required, an 'abstract of slop clothing received' in the government store, an 'analysis of milk' and an 'analysis of leaven'. Part B is a separate set of medical notes describing a case of 'ulceratio narium' (ulceration of the nose) in 1831.
