    Describes, among other things, a new instrument which is a 'combination in effect of the principle of telescope and camera', as well as a successful 'experiment of wireless telegraphy between a station on the earth and a free balloon'. Claims that, if it had been conducted only a few years earlier, it could have meant that 'Andree and his companions [see RR1/16/2/1] might have sent word of their adventures and been rescued in time' (382).
