13th November 90
I have sent you several circulars calling for Returns of the temperature Rainfall & weather at Warren during 1889 & the present year of which you have not taken any notice. Excepting to send in very imperfect returns for July August & September of this year.
For the first 6 months of this year I have no returns. I am writing to you now as a last reminder before making an official complaint against you for neglect of duty. This work was duly undertaken by you and the neglect of it has made the record of Temperature and Rainfall at Warren most unsatisfactory.
I have the honour to be
Your obedient Servant
H. C. Russell
