My Dear Mr Murray


When you
asked about
appendices I
forgot my obns
calculated by
Maclear . Admiral
Smythe's son in law





has very promptly
undertaken the
editorship and
as he has found
out a new way
of correcting
Lunars and says
Maclears work
is admirable
I think it will
lend interest to
the book among the




75


scientific. Printed
in small type
I suppose it will
not occupy
much space
Captain Toynbee
will perhaps
need a few
Nautical Almanacs
from you. I am
at Tete in correction
of slips Will finish all
except the set up
sheets





on Wedensday. I go
to Dublin on Thursday
Did you ever get
an opinion on
the grammar
perhaps the observations
will be a better
appendix than it
Mr Rae . Common
wealth, newspaper
wants an early
copy for friendly
review. I said
I would send the order




76


to you He is 37
Jamaica St. Glasgow
If you send
a copy to the
Editor of the
Edinburgh
pray let it be
one in which
an error in
page 96 is
corrected. He
has printed some





sheets correctly.
I would like to
give Captain
Need & Dr
Smith a copy
each for
their kindness
in giving the
drawings —
I sent off this
morning page
544 Press

and the last bundle
of slips but two
If you ever
were afraid
of my not
giving you
bulk , you
are not so
now for I
have an index

I am &c

D. Livingstone
