DescriptionThe letter of Sir Charles Lucas has been considered by the President and Council of the Royal Society and Larmor has been instructed to reply as follows. The Royal Society are strongly of opinion that the foundation and equipment of a Solar Observatory in Australia are desirable or else that provision for systematic solar observations, including adequate staff, should be made at one of the existing observatories.
