Sir 
I have the honor to forward for the 
information of Government, a report of my proceedings 
during the journey which in accordance with their 
instructions I took to the south, for the purpose of observing 
the solar Eclipse of the 21st ultimo,
After arriving at Sadras,  Mr Taylor,
whom it was intended, I should accompany for reasons 
already explained by him, determined upon returning 
I resolved however to proceed, being of opinion that 
I could reach the line where, according to the Nautical 
Almanac, the Eclipse would be total, in Sufficient 
time to observe it according to the Almanac the Total 
Eclipse would be visible, at the following points on the 
Earths Surface 
Longitude 68.13’ E Lat 14.13’ N
“ 80.51 “ 9.39
“ 93.27 “ 7.32
