    REPORTS Mr. Chrystal read the following summary of a Report upon a Comparison of the B.A. Units of Electrical Resistancethat had been performed by himself and Mr. S. A. Saunder.—The experiments, of which I have here an account, were undertaken for the purpose of comparing the British Association Standards of Resistance now deposited in the Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge. In the account of the work Mr. Saunder and myself have endeavoured as much as possible to enable anyone who consults it to judge by internal evidence of the accuracy of the comparison.
