The Areas of the blue, red & blue wedges are each measured from

the centre as the common vertex.

The blue wedges measured from the centre of the circle represent area

red wedges measured from the centre the deaths from wounds; & the

black wedges measured from the centre the deaths from all other causes.

The black line across the red triangle in Nov 1854 marks the boundary

of the deaths from all other causes during the month.

In October 1854, & April 1855; the black area coincides with the red;

in January & February 1856, the blue coincides with the black.

The entire areas may be compared by following the blue, the red & the

black lines enclosing them.
