                                These observations will be useful in filling up (as far as 
they go) the Magnetic survey of this part of India and 
determining the present position of the Magnetic Equator 
and possess a further interest as affording a compari 
son with a similar series taken some years since 
by Messrs Taylor and Caldicott by which the progres-
sive changes of the Dip especially may be satisfactorily 
determined,
I have the honor to be 
Sir
Your most obedient servant
