Excerpt from The Climate of Chicago The earliest meteorologic observations that have been preserved were made at Fort Dearborn, near the lake shore, in July, 1832. This series was continued until December, 1836, when there is a gap up to December, 1856, excepting a few Observations at the Mechanics' Insti tute, in 1844. From January 1, 1858, to October, 1859, no records are on file, but since November, 1859, a continuous series of observations has been maintained down to the present time, with the exception of 14 days in October, 1871, which were lost in the great fire of October 8 and 9. These remarks apply to observations of temperature. For rainfall the records are not so complete. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
