Dear Sir

I can arrange if you particularly desire it for your visit at five thirty pm to see Saturn, but the planet being low down in the western sky even at this time of the evening is not at all in a good position as they haze and sun through which it would have to be observed would consequently veil its beauty and the moon also getting well on towards full would interfere. However if you will let me know in the forenoon of the day you wish to come up I will make the necessary arrangements to be in to meet you; with regard to the Quick refractors we have, I don’t feel justified in the absence of Mr. Russell in negotiating for the sale.

I am dear sir
Yours truly
H A Lenehan
Acting Government Astronomer
