TitleReferee's report by William Henry Mahoney Christie, on a paper 'Report of the observations of the total solar eclipse of August 29, 1886, made at the Island of Carriacou' by Stephen Joseph Perry and Lieutenant J Masterman
Date19 August 1887
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society' on it's own, but might be published along with the other reports of the eclipse. Suggests the paper be deferred until the drawings are complete. Until then, the full abstract already published in the Proceedings covers the paper well.
