45 11 Macquarie St. South Sydney Dec. 29th 1857 57/73 Sir You are requested to take the first opportunity of completing the establishment of the Meteorological Observatory at Cape Moreton. For this purpose you will require to enclose a spare twelve or fourteen feet square, with a paling fence, sufficiently close to keep out goats or other animals and having a small gate which you would do well to keep locked; you will also employ such assistance as you may require in erecting the vane, and fixing (if necessary) the Thermometer Stand.
