A closer view of the same letter:
Sept 23 0
I forward by this mail a supply of forms which please use for Monthly Returns; if you do not receive a book before you are ready to begin use one of the forms for making your daily entry.
You had better begin observations as soon as you can so that you may get familiar with the instruments and able to make good records by the first pro??.
The evaporator need not be covered during rain, provision is made for determining the rain which falls into it.
You will find it necessary to exercise great care in measuring and weighing the Rain.
No pay is attached to the Office of Meteorological Observer except in 8 cases where much more has to be done and more instruments are supplied.
I have the honor to be
Mr E.?? St Aubyn Kingsford
