Historical Records of New Zealand
Note in the handwriting of Sir Joseph Banks:—The exact weight of the garden and every part of it will be reported by this post to be 3 tons 3 cwt. 3 qr. Every box was weighed—tarpauling, gratings, glass, &c. The Commissioners report it to the Board this post. As they were not ordered to report anything but the weight, that only will be done.
Mr. Gelpin says that the weight of the garden will operate in a heel with a force equal to produce 1 ½ degrees. The larget heel he has measured was 45 degrees.
