A good part of what has been collected here appears
to be material for a report or reports to the Coast
and Geodetic Survey. Included are notes to superiors
and subordinates in the Survey; a description of the
Gravitation and Astronomical Station, Ebensburg, Cambria
Co., Pennsylvania; pendulum readings at the Smithsorlian
and in Ann Arbor, Ithaca, and Madison; calculation
for Gautier pendulums; the comparison of a metal decimetre
with a glass decimetre; notes on a clock signal and
self-switch; list of books and apparatus charged to
CSP; corrections to Appendices 15 and 16 of the Report
of 1884. Approximately one-hundred-fifty leaves with
red and blue numbers serawled on one side have been
separated from the rest. These constitute a miscellaneous
collection of worksheets, numbered by CSP in red from
1 to 2038 and in blue from 2038 to 1 (i.e., red number
1 is blue number 2038). Included here are records of
pendulum observations for the Coast and Geodetic Survey,
calculations, exploration of mathematical problems.
