My dear Sir,
I have this day 
despatched by Railway to the 
apartments of the Royal Society 
a parcel containing Professor 
P. Smyth’s Paper in 5 Volumes 
I have read the Paper care-
fully, especially those parts which 
have any bearing on Astronomy,
and I consider it to be well 
worthy of a place in the Transac-
tions of the Society, as containing 
valuable contributions to Astrono-
my and other departments 
of science. I may mention in 
particular, the Telescopic ap-
pearances of Jupiter & Saturn,
