THE GREAT RAINSTORM OF 1866.

Mr. L. J. Le Conte, C. E., of Oakland, has kindly furnished the following relative to the great rainstorm in this city on the 19th and 20th of December, 1866:

Our profession is interested in maximum rainfall in twenty-four hours. I inclose a copy of the record of the memorable rainfall of December 19 and 20, 1866, which is given in hourly subdivisions. The monthly rainfall was also the maximum on record-15.16 inches-while at Sacramento the record was 12.90 inches. I think this was published in full in the Evening Bulletin in December, 1885.

Following is the record referred to:
