My dear Sir

I duly received your return for January & knowing you take an interest in the results has induced me to mention the fact: that our sum of the rainfall taken from your return comes out 7.30: and we are not sure which is correct, the sum, or the daily entries.

We have had some very hot weather here since Christmas while your return with a few exceptions shews beautiful cool weather for the same period. I wish you could send some of it down here.

With kind regards.
Believe me
Yours very sincerely
H C Russell

    Australians are still today colloquially asking each other to send weather from one part of our wide brown land to another.
