dc.description.abstract This is a handwritten document which has both letters received by and written from the Madras Observatory. The interesting part of this record is that letters received by the Observatory have been copied fully or partly using a calligrapher. It has a section on regulations where a datailed account of the procedures for educating, training the newly appointed surveyors, salaries, allowances, duties, and also a list of instruments and books supplied to them when they joined the service is chronicled. It also gives a list of clothes and other necessary articles required by him. This record further enumerates all the instruments available in the Observatory which Captain Warren received from J. Goldingham when he went on leave in 1805. The last part of the record gives a list of books, manuscripts, instruments, furniture, stationary, tents, available in the Observatory. It has signatures of Michael Topping, John Warren and J. Goldingham. en
