191 Sydney Observatory 29th November 1870 My dear Sir I am sorry that the late Astronomer did not do more for Astronomy than he did. But I think we are only doing him justice when we remember that he considered the Base Line one of the principal objects set before him to accomplish and the more so because Mr Airy laid so much stress upon it and however unfortunate he may have been in the management of the work especially in the time it occupied it was well done so far as it went and he devoted to it all the time he worked.
