Sir

I am requested to inform you that there will be forwarded to you this day by the Colonial Storekeeper Sydney ten packages of Meteorological Instruments and stands addressed to the Police Magistrates of Albury and Deniliquin who will arrange for their conveyance from Melbourne to their destinations.

The two smaller cases containing the Instruments require to be treated with the greatest possible care. I have to request that you will be good enough to advise me of their arrival and to take charge of them until you shall hear from The Police Magistrates of Albury and Deniliquin on the subject.

I have the honour to be
Sir
Your most obedient servant
W Scott
Astronomer

The Colonial Storekeeper
