|Date||8 March 1845|
|Description||Concerning the sale of Observations. Asks [George Biddell] Airy for an estimate for how many will be expected to be sold, and if Mr. Murray should advertise the sale, as only a few will be expected to be sold without it. States the rest will be given away which will have the same impact as those sold. Agrees with Herschel of the importance of the distribution for Airy's work in foreign countries.|
Also states the Royal Society does not have the mentioned equipment and has been unable to find out what the Astronomical Society sends out discretely, asks for them to write to Lubbock or Weld.
