TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Director, the Bombay Observatory
Date18 April 1904
DescriptionHarrison has been directed to inform them that the observations recently forwarded to the Royal Society from the Colabs Observatory, relating to the International Terrestrial Magnetic Co-operation, 1902-1903, were submitted to the Hydrographic Department of the Admiralty, who had reduced similar observations from the Antarctic Expedition, but they state that the observations are currently in an unsuitable form for completion.

The observations are being returned, and Harrison asks that they, in line with the Society's memorandum to all contributing observatories, make the necessary arthimetical reductions and complete the results sheets, and then submit this information as soon as possible.
