Description

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The expedition was organised by the Royal Society. Suggests it might have been prudent to appoint a single editor for the disparate reports, which are being submitted singly and should be printed together. Refers to report of Mr Maunder. Suggests Mr Lockyer [Joseph Norman Lockyer?] be aksed to prepare an introduction as head of the expedition. Refers to Mr Scuster and Mr Osburn.
