The Equatorial Coudé of the Paris Observatory


IT was only on the 7th of this month that my attention was called to a letter in NATURE (p. 4) from M. Lœwy, headed “Reply to Mr. Grubb's Criticisms on the Equatorial Coudé of the Paris Observatory.” I deferred answering this letter as I was travelling at the time, and had not the necessary data by me to refer to; further, because I desired to see the second part of M. Lœwy's letter before making my reply; and lastly, because I hoped that some of the errors in M. Lœwy's first letter were misprints, and that he would have corrected them in his second.
