Abstract

The prevalence during the last three or four months of a
fever, whose type was, I believe, assimilated most closely to
that which characterizes scarlet fever, has induced me to
bring under the notice of the Royal Society, in the first
place, the nature of some of those influences which may
have aggravated, if not caused, the disease ; and in the
second, an outline of the precautions which ought to be
taken to secure to the inhabitants of Hobart Town a
continuance of the advantages which its position entitles
them to claim,-situated as it is on the banks of a noble
river, with an atmosphere pure and healthy, if not affected
by influences arising from within the city itself.
