In submitting to you the foregoing Tables, it has been my
endeavour so to classify the facts as that they should readily
convey to you their practical meaning. The deaths, the ages at
which those deaths took place, and the diseases causing those
deaths, are so recorded that you will be enabled easily to compare
the healthiness or unhealthiness of the different Divisions of your
District; and, in after years, when the Sanitary arrangements
which you have already carried out, shall have more thoroughly
developed their anticipated good, and when other arrangements
which you have now in contemplation shall have produced their
legitimate results, the Annual renewal of these Tables cannot fail
