Abstract

I INCLOSE a tracing of a broken window-pane—one of the numerous cases of damage caused by the hail-storm on the morning of the 3rd inst. in this place. I almost fear the subject is one unworthy the attention of your readers, but I am curious to know what relation the space cut out may bear to the size of the hailstone causing it; and whether the clean and regular opening made would indicate an almost horizontal direction of the blow, as in the case of a bullet.
