Abstract

ON the low-lying east bank of the Demerara River, about eight miles from its mouth, is situate Diamond Plantation, the largest sugar factory in British Guiana, located approximately at 6° 42′ N. and 58° 10 W. Preserved at Diamond is a valuable record of the daily rainfall for the past forty-six years. Through the courtesy of the Plantation authorities, I have been able to secure a copy of the register.
