[[preprinted]] 24 [[/preprinted]] [[underlined]] Oct. 27. '96 [[/underlined]] Plate 4 5058 z [[superscript]] 1 [[/superscript]] Scorpii not marked as bright line star, but F is seen plainly bright, G has bright edge of longer wave length, with a dark line of still longer wave-length. The first line visible with longer wave-length than h also seems [[strikethrough]] dark [[/strikethrough]] bright in the centre, may be a defect in the plate. There is also a band between F & G which has the same appearance as G as described above The dark part of this band towards the violet end of spectrum is concident with [[insertion]] ^ the [[/insertion]] Orion line towards F (About 447?) The first line visible with longer wave-length than F looks to me bright, especially without the magnifying glass. It seems to be bright edged on side of greatest wave-length. The 2 groups of lines between F & G are composed of [[insertion]] 2 lines the 2 of each group with longest wave length being [[/insertion]] [[strikethrough]] lines [[/strikethrough]] distinctly double.

'96 [[/underlined]] Plate 4 6463 z [[superscript]] 1 [[/superscript]] Scorpii F bright Orion line of shorter wave-length than F faintly bright G consists of a bright thin line superposed on dark broad line Between F & G there are the same two conspicious groups of two lines each, but the one in each group of longest wave-length looks hazy, instead of double. It may come from a difference in the plates. Plate 4 5753 The spectrum is to faint that I can not tell whether these lines are doubles or not. There does not seem to be any indication of it. Plate 4 6325 Spectrum poor towards F. Do not see those lines double. Plate 4 4400 Those lines are double. G line quite bright and the nearest one of shorter wave length than G looks bright.
