12 Sydney Observatory May 30 1889 L Kingsmill Esquire Dear Sir Your letter of May 29 with newspaper just received. And in reply I would advise you to take no notice whatever of what anyone may say either in the newspaper or out of it so long as you know that you do your duty: I have good reason for believing that your measures of the rainfall are quite correct because I have compared them with other carefully kept records and the mere fact that two gauges differ in a rainstorm is nothing to those who understand the matter.

438 Sydney Observatory June 26 1871 Dear Sir I have heard from V M Larmer District Surveyor at Braidwood that the altitude you publish in the almanac for Braidwood is wrong: it should be 2400 feet not 3507 feet as you give it.
