DescriptionRegarding the work on the Colaba Observatory the Observatories Committee makes three recommendations regarding scale of measurement, obtaining a Richarz' Thermograph and the site of the Observatory.

The Committee also makes two recommendations on the Kodaikanal Observatory: the list of staff should be provided and that the report on the work should provide clearer information, as it is currently too vague to make a judgement on the observations.
