Unfortunately, the weather was very bad during this period, so that it was impossible to obtain more than twenty-one drawings, eighteen of which are here selected for publication. It would doubtless have been practicable to observe the planet with advantage after the 23rd January, if it had not also been frustrated by the unfavourable state of the atmosphere. The speculum used is the same with which the drawings of Comets b and c, 1881, in these Transactions, Part XVII., (antea page 239 and Plate XIX) have been executed; the power was in all cases 216.
