Abstract

In a paper read before the Society in 1907, two of us
gave an account of observations made with aneroids on
Ben Lomond in 1906 and 1907 with the object of determining
the difference of height between Legge Peak,
the highest summit in the northern part of the Ben
Lomond range, and the trigonometrical station at the southern
end of the range. The trigonometrical station is stated
on the official maps of Tasmania to have a height of 5010
feet; Cradle Mountain is stated to be 5069 feet, and the
Ben Lomond station comes next below it, being thus the
second highest of the officially recorded summits.
