On
the Barometer
<u>by J. F. Daniels F. R. S.</u>
Read Jan 26, 1826

from which I thought myself 
entitled to infer that Barometers
of the usual construction, however
carefully made, must be liable 
to a gradual deterioration from
the slow insinuation of air
between the mercury & the [tube?].
It was a subject of [?] with
me, at the time, that I had not
been able to find any [registers?],
except that of the Royal Society
to the [?], which
continued for a sufficient length
