Sir

Your request for a copy of the registry of rainfall at Sydney for as long a period as possible was referred to me for the first time yesterday. I send you the returns from April 1840 to October 1856, at which time the observations were discontinued.

I fear these results will be of very little service to you in calculations relating to Geelong or its neighbourhood, as the rainfall there must be altogether different from that at Sydney.

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