Nor does our death.rate compare at all unfavourably with that of
other urban districts; Tottenham being 10.7 and that of Walthamstow
On the whole the temperature was fairly even, rather below the
average than usual, except in February and March, when we were
visited with several days worthy of a true summer.
I estimate the population at 102000. Further notes will be
found in the usual place under the heading "Births."
1019 houses have been erected during the year, and certified fit
for habitation.
