A Defaulting Glazier





Astronomy, Observation

    Noting James Glaisher's publication of letters on the recent meteor shower (which was only seen in Canada), plays on the similarity between Glaisher and glazier. Asks the meteorologist to repair 'the windows of the dark' and questions the use of a 'Glazier' at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, who does not 'attend to his business'.
