                                the Society a just notion of the State of every month 
at that place, and that which was most observable 
in it. I could wish that either the Society, or I 
my Self, could have had some observations in the more 
Southerly parts, to have tallied with these.
Appendix to the foregoing 
Observations, being meteorological 
Observations at Lunden in Sweden,
in the year 1724, which tally with 
Mr Consett’s.
These Observations not coming to hand, till I 
had finish’d those at Petersburgh, I am forced to 
subjoin them by way of Appendix. And the first 
Observation I shall make, shall be of the Range of 
the Mercury in the Barometer, which seems to be 
different in both places, as far as I can judge of 
the matter by the few Observations that tally 
with one another (which is only from December 18
to the end of that month); Mr Consett’s barometrical 
divisions before that time not being intelligible.
and in all that fortnight’s time the Petersburgh 
Barometer was observed above 30 Inches, and once 
above 31: whereas that at Lunden was but little 
above 29, and but once at 29.6. And indeed thro’
the whole year, the Lunden Barometer I observe 
was only now and then below 28 Inches, and much 
seldomer above 30. But I shall perhaps be better 
able to give an account of these matters, when I 
come to the Observations of future years
