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.

1096.[Fragments of Coast Survey Report of 1889]
TS., n.p., [1889], 18 pp., with CSP's corrections, and 2 photographs.
Among the fragments is a typescript of a report (?); various tables (calculation of atmospheric effects, coefficients of expansion of the pendulum, constants for calculating flexure effects, flexure per kilogram); descriptions and positions of the Smithsonian, Cornell, Ann Arbor, and Madison astronomical stations; deduction of the ratio of gravity between the different stations; general description of the pendulums and other equipment.

1098. [Fragments]
A. MS., n.p., n.d., 18 pp.; plus pp. 1-7 of a typewritten report on tide elevations and 4 pp. of TS. (bibliographical notes).
