                                Extract Military Letter from Fort St George 
dated 26th March 1844 No 16.
1 We have the honor to report 
that the Honorable Company’s 
Astronomer having been permitted 
to proceed to Tranquebar for the 
purpose of watching the circumstances 
attending a total Eclipse of the 
Sun on the 21st December 1843 
we directed Lieutenant Ludlow 
Superintendent of the Magnetic 
Observatory at Madras, to accompany 
that Officer and assist in the 
observations and we beg to 
forward a copy of the result 
of his journey. Lieutenant Ludlow 
embraced the opportunity of 
making observations of the Dip 
Horizontal Intensity at certain
places on his return to the Presidency 
which are included in his report.
