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.
