Observatory May 18 1889 W Surfton Esquire Hon. Secretary B. P. C Sir Re rain gauge Your letter to the Post Master General dated May 11th 1889 and calling attention to the unsuitable position of the rain gauge at Bingara, I have made inquiry as to the surroundings of the rain gauge and find that they are somewhat confined, but not to such an extent as will interfere with the rain record.

Observatory 10th Dec 1889 Frank Jones Esqre Dear Sir Many thanks for your note about the meteor. On the enclosed map I have marked down the directions in which different observers saw the meteor, and you will see that ??, Grafton, Armidale, Tenterfield, Emmaville??, Bingara and Campo Santo, though quite independent: agree in fixing the point somewhere between Barraba & Narrabri, and if you would kindly mark a line on the map in the direction in which you saw it, I should be very much obliged to you.
