Yours of 16th January duly received. I shall be much obliged to you for your Rain records and I am sending forms under separate cover.
With regard to the position indicated in your letter: I am in some doubt. in [sic] the best map I have Ivanhoe is placed 24 miles NNW from Mossgeil: and if your station is 32 miles in same direction from Mossgeil It could not very well be 36 miles east of Ivanhoe unless the maps are wrong.
Your letter says that Murrumbong is 32 miles NNW from Mossgeil & 36 miles east from Ivanhoe are your measures by road or direct?
Yours very truly
