Abstract

Wishing, primarily in connection with the obtaining of
necessary information for purposes connected with the
drainage of Hobart, and secondarily, to fix the mean sea level
for geodetic and engineering matters, to get a series of tidal
observations, I spoke to Captain Oldham, of H.M.S. "Egeria,"
on the subject and he at once arranged to fix the automatic
tide gauge of his ship on the New Wharf, and to have
observations taken for as long a period as the sojourn at
Hobart permitted. I am indebted to him for the accompanying
remarks and tables of observations.
