Sydney Dec. 28th 1857
I have to request that you will send me as soon as possible some account of the Meteorological Instruments left in your charge, also the monthly duplicates of the observations made by you from the commencement to the 31st Instant.
You will please to state whether or not the vane has been erected, and if so by whom and by what means the directions of the Cardinal Points have been determined.
I am Sir
Your obedient Servant
