My dear Sir

I think I shall not be able to attend the meeting of the Society this evening.

If it is agreeable to the gentlemen present I will be very much pleased to have the next meeting at my place — and pray renew my invitation to the gentlement I mentioned in my former note to drop up here some night if they can make it convenient to have a little star gazing where the night is likely to be clear enough for the purpose. It will be quite a pleasure to have them call — and come yourself also.

Dear Sir

Will you ask the V.P. of the Society & Mr. Miller at whose house we were at the other night, and any one else you may think would be useful to come to my house some night soon — as soon as you please, when the night is likely to be good for star gazing — and to come himself of course — for the purpose of trying and testing my telescope.

And be good enough if the gentlemen are able to come to let me by 4 PM of the day + hour they will come, and I shall be very glad to see you all.

Bothkamp, Holstein 1890 August 7.

Dear Gentlemen.

According to your wishes I send you herewith some copies of the negative I took of Jupiter 1889 August 7 after it had been occulted by the Moon.

As you may have seen out of the report A. N. 2928 the photograph has been made but some time after the reappearance, so that Jupiter's image is near the edge of the plate.

The details are naturally still more indistinctly to be seen on the copies than on the negative.
