"This report is by very far the most important document, in reference to the difficult subjects of the magnetism of iron ships, the change of magnetism, the correction of the compass, and the adjustment of the correcting apparatus, that has yet appeared. It does more to remove doubt on several important points (I would particularly cite the influence of the position of the ship while building, the occasional rapid change of magnetism in a short time after launching, and the general slow change afterwards) than all the discussions which have previously taken place; and, generally speaking, it explains more completely the difficulties, moral and physical, attending this subject, than all other papers known to me. -- G. B. AIRY. T. H. Fabrer, Esq., &c.". Seller Inventory # 41870
