7 Camden Street and Town - Asks him to write a notice of [Henry] Coddington to include in the Annual Report of the Astronomical Society. He is aiming for fuller biographies and worries 'that unless we can get all our Fellows to interest themselves, we stand a good chance of losing our existence. Every person who can be quoted as having done any work for us is strength just now, when Baily's [Francis Baily] loss has thrown us upon ourselves'.
