Government Observatory Sydney 9th June 1874 Sir I have the honor to inform you that owing to the great amount of meteorological work which had to be undertaken during 1873 and two previous years, in order to satisfy the demand for information made by the public, I have been unable to reduce and make available for science the valuable results obtained from the Tidegauges at Fort Denison and Newcastle.

Sydney Observatory June 6th 1871 My dear Mr Tebbutt The enclosed paper contains some notes which belong to the observatory on Argus. You will see that I have only spoken of your published results and not of the very interesting point of the annual variable of which you wrote to me, as I was not sure that you had made it public.

251 Govt Observatory 24th Janry 1871 Sir I was very much surprised to hear this morning from my assistant that you had not sent in the monthly meteorological Returns for 1870. I have been myself too busy to attend to it and took it for granted that when I restored the pay you would send in the Returns.
