                                Section IV. Abstract of the Pendulum Observations at
      the Upper Station.

<s>38</s>36 The remarks in the preceding Sections explain all the
essential points in the following Table. It is only necessary to
add that the temperature of the Barometer (which was suspended
in the Ante Room, very near to the Stove) was higher than
that of the Pendulum; and a small correction, never exceeding
-0.075, has been applied to its reading.
         First <s>Section</s>Series. Pendulum 1821 above
