Wednesday March 25, 1894 [sic.]

Began with Mr Thackeray to look into the errors in position of Ecliptic given in the volumes of Greenwich Obns
Frank Dyson, Chief Assistant
RH says..... I think the date on this entry should actually read Wednesday March 28, since the 25th was actually a Sunday. It certainly seems unlikely that Dyson and Thackeray would have chosen to begin the tedious work of correcting old observations and calculations on Easter Sunday. However, since all was no doubt quiet on the 25th I have posted this one today.
