Description'I am sorry to say there is a bad mistake in Mr Wilde's paper. In correcting 23o 30" to 23o 30' you have somehow altered 23 into 20. If the number of Proceedings ['Proceedings of the Royal Society'] is not yet issued, please put in the erratum slip inclosed herewith; if it has been issued print the erratum slip for the next number, & let us see a proof'.
