[[margin]] A.G.C. 9311
29 Can. Maj. [[/margin]]

Plate chi 6265 tau Canis Maj.
A.G.C. 9311  like [[strikethrough]] 8 [[/strikethrough]]  6 Puppis, the bright bands are fainter, the [[insert]] [[strikethrough]][[?]] [[/strikethrough]] ^[[Puppis]] lines between H beta & H gamma. H gamma & H delta are brighter than in zeta Puppis. These two lines are found in Miss Maury's Group 1 stars. I looked through all the boxes in which I have placed B stars for one like Group 1. I found nothing with the characteristic lines of Group 1 except on this plate marked theta Orionis. The star was identified as iota Orionis, in the list of Miss Maury's Group 1. I thought I saw a faint bright streak where the zeta Puppi bright bands are but can not determine definitely from my plates and it does not seem to be as on the C plates. But the characteristic line of zeta Puppis between H beta & H gamma, H gamma & H delta match up exactly with these early Orion lines.

Is A.G.C ^[[9311]] intermediate between zeta Puppi and iota Orionis. As it shows some of the peculiarities of each other and moreover, the bright bands seem to be fading, the characteristic early Orion lines to be growing in intensity.

I brought up plates from 6500 to 7900 and commenced to separate them according to types.

Transcription Notes:
How does a person show the specialized symbols such as the second line a mark in front of the name of the constellation Canis Maj. That is a "tau" There are also symbols at the beginning of the fourth line H (followed by what looks like a B for Beta) = YES and the letter A (followed by what kind of symbol?) = gamma
