Letter from Matthew Flinders to Ann Flinders (39 of 41) (FLI25) Page 2

the ship; tomorrow I go again on board the Loire. Saturday and
Sunday, I shall be at home revising our first set of experiments; and
on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, as I expect, we shall be em-
ployed on board the Devastation bomb, which Sir R. Bickerton
has ordered to take the Loire's place in Stoke's Bay, near Spithead.
      Our experiments have succeeded in showing the differences
of variation which I expected, but the quantities are not so great
as they were on board the Investigator. I have not time to say
more at present.
                Kind love to Bell and little Nanny.
                            Thine most affectionately
                                        Mattw Flinders
