Abstract

With regard to the past I propose to say very little,
though it would be interesting if somebody could be induced
to look thoroughly through the proceedings of this Society
and elsewhere to make a proper history of the subject.
Mr. Kingsmill two months ago gave you some account
of the official work for the Government performed in the
past. I would like to call attention to the other practical
astronomical work that has been done here.
