Sir

In your return for June the rainfall observations contradict each other and it is clear that the weights are at fault.

Now when the rain gauge is hung on the hook of the scales empty it should balance without weights. Try it and let me know as soon as possible if it does. Also at same time describe to me how you take the rain observations.

I have the honor to be
