The Rev. A. Glennie kept a Meteorological Jounal of all rainy days, floods and heights of floods being given in many cases; also, thunder and hailstorms at Paterson, Lochinvar, and Brisbane Water, from January, 1837, to the end of October, 1870, rain measures being taken during the last two years at Lochinvar—

At Paterson, 1832, to January, 1850.
Brisbane Water, August, 1850, to June, 1863.
Lochinvar, August, 1863, to October, 1870.

Extracts were published in the "Climate of New South Wales," by H. C. Russell, 1877—(Government Printer); and a full copy of the Journal is in the Library of the Observatory.

The late E. C. Close, kept a Journal of Floods in the Hunter, 1831 to 1864, from which extracts were published in the "Climate of New South Wales," by H. C. Russell, but the journal in full was not presented to the Observatory and is in the possession of his son.

The late Sir William Macarthur, of Camden Park, kept a Journal of the weather for many years, and Rain Measures, from 1860 to 1875. Extracts, including a rain table for the whole period, will be found in the "Climate of New South Wales," by H. C.
