Abstract

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 October, 1866.
Though many of the meteorological phenomena were abnormal in
character this month, yet, on the whole, the weather was most auspicious
to health and life, and specially so to all children and young persons,
and even to adults under 60 years old. Very aged and weakly persons
constituted the principal mortality of this October, and in a greater proportion
to the total deaths at all other ages, than any other October on
record.
