Observatory Sydney August 28th 90 Mr Edward Hooper Birmingham Before long I shall have to send through the Agent General for another Gross of Raingauges and the last lot were too long for the instruments there is in fact a considerable piece of waste glass in them; which is moreover very inconvenient for me and I am therefore sending to you by parcels post a sample of what I want which please keep as a guide for any that you may make for me in future.
